Deformation monitoring or structural monitoring is generally a working procedure to ensure the safety of engineering structures and also to validate the engineering structures’ designs. Structural monitoring has become very important in our country, as more and more new engineering structures had been erected in our country over the years. All engineering structures are subject to deform and displace due to several factors such as environmental stress, structural overload, tectonic movements etc. Generally, deformation monitoring can be accomplished by geodetic and geotechnical methods. Geotechnical instrumentation can achieve very good one-dimensional or two-dimensional results but often limited to the area where the instruments installed. Conventional geodetic method using terrestrial instruments for example total stations, EDM etc is comparatively a slow process to GPS method. Besides, GPS can offer three-dimensional results at a relatively lower budget. This paper will highlight the role of GPS application in geodetic deformation monitoring for dam monitoring.
