Advanced Visualization and Accessibility to Heterogeneous Monitoring Data

The proper management and visualization of data is crucial for the success of structural health monitoring (SHM). The article discusses how SHM is a promising tool for the better management of infrastructure. General principles for SHM data management are researched, established, and proposed by the authors, and an original solution for data management based on these principles is presented. The article discusses how data management is especially challenging when heterogeneous data are involved and combined with camera images. Various sensors based on different technologies can measure many parameters such as strain, tilt, weather, etc., whereas live cameras can visualize traffic response and all of the data streams can be registered both statically and dynamically. Data management is even more complex if multiple users access the data and have diverse backgrounds and interests (e.g., the owner/manager of the structure, operator, responsible engineer, and academic). The proposed principles were implemented in novel data management software and applied to a signature bridge for validation purposes. The article discusses how feedback from interested groups including managers, operators, engineers of record, and academics are used for validation.
