“The world will collect more environmental data in the next 5 years than in all previous history…”Original quote courtesy Dow Jones Investment Forum, environmental * added by EarthSoft…<br />
What data does EQuIS manage?<br />Scientific / Technical / Environmental Data:<br /><ul><li> Environmental: Water (Lake, Drinking, Discharge, Ocean, River, Ground), Air/Vapor, Sediment (Superfund/DoD), Dust, Noise, Analytical, Eco-Risk, Biological, Archeological
Geotechnical and geological data</li></li></ul><li>EQuIS Disruptive Technology<br />EQuIS Workflows change how environmental and geotechnical professionals work:<br /><ul><li> Are you collecting a huge amount of air, water, environmental, ecological, or geotechnical data? Do you have standardized EDDs?
Are your data in a variety of hardcopy, spreadsheet, or personal database formats? Do you work with multiple labs and consultants?
Are you sending a large number of samples to labs for testing?
Are professionals and consultants making graphics and reports “by hand” or with spreadsheets and billing you per hour?
Are you paying a different consultant to discover lots of errors in your data months later?
Do field crews and labs check their EDDs prior to submission to you?</li></li></ul><li>EQuIS <br /> Primary EQuIS Modules:<br /> Schemas in Oracle, SQL Server, and Express<br /> Professional<br /> EDP and Enterprise EDP<br /> EZView and EIA<br /> Sample Planning Module & EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE) <br /> EQuIS for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server <br />Several EQuIS case studies show dramatic cost savings in <br />data collection and management expenses.<br />
