  • 1. EQuIS© Overview
    Environmental Quality Information System
    Copyright EarthSoft, Inc. 2010
  • 2. “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…
  • 3. What 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
    • 4. Geotechnical and geological data
  • EQuIS Disruptive Technology
    EQuIS Workflows change how environmental and geotechnical professionals work:
    • Are you collecting a huge amount of air, water, environmental, ecological, or geotechnical data? Do you have standardized EDDs?
    • 5. Are your data in a variety of hardcopy, spreadsheet, or personal database formats? Do you work with multiple labs and consultants?
    • 6. Are you sending a large number of samples to labs for testing?
    • 7. Are professionals and consultants making graphics and reports “by hand” or with spreadsheets and billing you per hour?
    • 8. Are you paying a different consultant to discover lots of errors in your data months later?
    • 9. Do field crews and labs check their EDDs prior to submission to you?
  • EQuIS
    Primary EQuIS Modules:
    Schemas in Oracle, SQL Server, and Express
    Professional
    EDP and Enterprise EDP
    EZView and EIA
    Sample Planning Module & EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE)
    EQuIS for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server
    Several EQuIS case studies show dramatic cost savings in
    data collection and management expenses.
  • 10. What is EQuIS?
    • Technical Data Management: Sample – Test – Result Data
