In this paper we summarize the results of our efforts, during the last ten years, to apply artificial intelligence techniques to the interpretation of engineering monitoring data. These efforts led us to create a set of software components which can be adapted to develop real-world applications to face specific customers' requirements, and to deploy several systems for the on-line interpretation of data coming from automatic monitoring systems of large dams, monuments, and landslides.
