    • What is EQuIS?
      • Technical Data Management
      • Sample – Test – Result Data
      • Chemistry /Geology /Limnology /Air /Geotechnical Data
      • Not an EMIS (EHS) system; Not a LIMS, Not for ISO
      • All .NET; SQL Server / Oracle
      • Open Systems; Licensed OR Hosted
      • Multi-lingual
      • The most widely used data management system in the US/UK/Canada/South America
      …Field Sensor and Lab Data to Web GIS Spider Diagrams….

    • What kind of data does EQuIS manage?
      Scientific / Technical / Environmental Data:
      • Environmental: Water (Lake, Drinking, Discharge, Ocean, River, Ground), Air/Vapor, Sediment (Superfund/DoD), Dust, Noise, Analytical, Eco-Risk, Biological, Archeological
      • Geotechnical and geological data
