This paper introduces the development and application of an integrated automatic slope monitoring system. The system combines (a) advanced conventional instruments and (b) accurate global positioning instruments. The development includes selection of all instruments, technical requirements, integration method and post-process of monitoring data, etc. This system has been installed in a real loose fill slope to verify its functions and reliability of the integrated system including remote data acquisition. Preliminary monitoring data are presented and discussed.
