Ortelium Modules

You can create your dynamic Ortelium atlas by combining a selection of ready-to-use technology modules.

If you don't find the right combination of modules for your needs, we can develop a tailor-made module that is fully compatible with the Ortelium platform technology.

Perhaps you have your own data pool that could be combined with Ortelium to make your data even more meaningful? Talk to us today and we’ll connect both worlds.

Ortelium Observation and Complaints

Observation Module

Collect, analyse, manage and report event-based observations, and share your data with stakeholders.

Ortelium’s Observation module offers streamlined data collection via web forms, a dedicated Smartphone app or call centre.

This module helps you get the most from event-based observations – such as complaints, incidents and health and safety risks and inspections – while improving efficiency in both data management and internal or external reporting.

You’ll be pleased to know there’s no need for spreadsheets, as all data can be processed statistically and reported in a standardised format with just a few clicks.

This module can even be used as communication tool to interact with particular communities. Its flexible data security and access framework means you can share the right level of information with different stakeholder groups.

Points of interest module

Define points or areas that are of special interest for your data monitoring.

These points may include:

  • residential areas, where complaint situations are likely to occur
  • waste collection routes
  • hospitals, schools and other places with special protection needs.

Waste Collection · Oil Tanking & Storage · Smart Cities

Ortelium Meteo Data

Meteo Data Module

Cross-check and validate other data channels against weather data.


Ortelium’s Meteo Data module integrates data feeds from local meteorological stations, online weather services and other independent data pools.

Depending on the feed, it can process and visualise historic, ‘nowcast’ and forecast data.

By adding meteorological data feeds to your atlas, Ortelium enables you to cross-check and validate other data channels against weather data. This gives you a greater understanding of the relations of impacts and the influence of certain meteorological conditions.

We can also provide a selection of feeds of various meteorological data providers.

Ortelium Sensor Integration

Sensor Module

Integrate any kind of sensor for continuous environmental monitoring and data visualisation.

Ortelium’s Sensor module is independent from data protocols and file structures and can adapt to your needs. It supports commonly used file formats for data exchange, such as XML, JSON and CSV.

Whether you have an existing sensor network or intend to create a new one, this module will help you make the most of your data.

It can interface with existing sensor networks, either directly via a web interface or using M2M transmission from a centralised data pool.

If you plan to build a new sensor network, we will work with our network of technology partners to support you. For example, we can help you to identify the ideal sensors and suggest suitable sensor locations, based on local meteorological conditions, terrain, existing buildings and other parameters.

We will also work with you to suggest how best to visualise your sensor data, giving you rapid access to the most valuable information, and enabling you to take timely and appropriate action.

Ortelium Dynamic Dispersion Modelling


Calculate and visualise your emissions dispersion on a digital map.

Ortelium ensures a comprehensive approach to dispersion modelling by combining accurate meteorological data with knowledge about the emitted odour from your site’s source(s).

Using this module, you can calculate and dynamically visualise the dispersion of your emissions on a digital map, in order to monitor and forecast possible impacts of your operations or validate past events. You can then take appropriate steps to avoid these outcomes if needed.

Ongoing use of the system helps you to better understand and verify complaints and their causes, meaning you can take prompt action to inform your neighbourhood and/or surveillance authorities if necessary.

Ortelium Process Optimisation


Maximise operational efficiency while minimising emissions.

Ortelium’s Process Optimisation module warns you once a defined monitoring area (such as a neighbourhood) is expected to be affected by your emissions and complaint situations are likely to occur.

The software even offers recommendations for adapting your process parameters to reduce or even prevent the alert situation under the current and forthcoming weather conditions, while keeping your operations running efficiently.

Ortelium SAP R/3 integration


Learn more about your company’s data, for greater business intelligence.

Ortelium’s SAP R/3 interface module offers an interface with existing SAP R/3 systems. This means you can query individually defined, space- and time-related data sets from your SAP R/3 system.

The data can then be linked to Ortelium’s map and timeline displays, making it truly interactive.

This means you can analyse data and possible relations between data sets over space and time. Your business data has never been more tangible!

We will work with you to select the relevant data sets and agree how to visually represent the data to maximise its value to you.

Field inspection interface Module

Make your field inspection results even more meaningful.

Ortelium offers an interface with the Online Field Inspection Manager (OFIM) by Olfasense, which was developed especially for the needs of laboratories performing field inspection projects. OFIM is fully compliant with the EN 16841-1 guideline and serves as a central platform for field inspection projects. 

Feeding OFIM data into Ortelium, allows combining your results with other relevant data channels, such as odour complaints from citizens, meteo station readings, sensors, location of potential odour sources, etc. - so that a more complete picture of the odour situation can be established.

Different data views on the Ortelium timeline and map help OFIM users and their clients to understand temporal and spacial relations between these data sets in a fast and detailed way.
