Capture Data From Sensors & Smart Devices
FDM can be used to store, analyse, visualise and report on data from sensors and hardware devices such as smart meters, wearables and other IT systems.
Data can be manually imported into FDM by administrators, or fed directly into the underlying database structure via a middleware solution such as Field Data Hub. Once stored within FDM data can be analysed, visualised and even modified via the web client and automated job services.
Store & Present Documents
Upload documents into FDM against specific sites, projects, devices and any other concept defined in your business model. These documents can be viewed within the client application (where a viewer is supported) or downloaded directly to an authorised users device.
Add Custom Business Analytics
FDM’s built in engine allows the addition of custom logic to perform analytics, reporting and create custom dashboard widgets.
The built-in data explorer allows you to manage your data, combining or comparing data sets. Additional views include day of month charting and the ability to edit or delete individual data points, or as a larger selection.

Construction & Inspections
FDM can be used as a portal to share information and data, in the form of documents and visualisations, with internal teams, sub-contractors and clients. Video and imagery can be directly accessed from the users’ web browser without the need to download or email. Forms can be implemented using the FDM schema functionality and entered directly, allowing advanced analysis such as validation and integration with advanced business processes.
Oil & Gas
Management of assets, documentation and data in a single portal brings advanced analytical capability from individual devices, through buildings, sites, regions and entire divisions. Advanced techniques such as integration with AI to identify assets from images, asset inventory optimisation and real time maintenance of digital twins between data and physical assets are possible with customisation via scripts and the Field Data Hub software.
FDM is used to collect and analyse data from renewable and non-renewable sources, including water, oil, gas, electricity, solar PV, combined heat and power, solar thermal, temperature and humidity sensors. Customisation has allowed consultants to implement invoicing, degree day data analysis, expected vs actual, estimation of usage and FiT calculations.
If you are developing projects that utilise sensors, controls or other systems, then FDM can be used to provide a dashboard to visualise your environment. The scripting technologies will allow you to develop quick proof of concept and demo systems to show off your creations.
Use FDM to build or demonstrate projects in your school or university. It can be used on solo and team projects, and allows sharing of data, documents and discussions. It can be quickly installed using other free to use components, providing a powerful environment to create data and information based solutions.
Systems Monitoring & Management
Data from other systems and hardware such as cpu utilisation, memory usage, usage data, survey results can be stored and used within FDM. For example, the FDM Licensing System is actually built using FDM and stores information about usage worldwide to assist our support team.
