EarthSoft Corporate Overview October 2010

  1. 1. EQuIS© Overview<br />Environmental Quality Information System<br />Copyright EarthSoft, Inc. 2010<br />
  2. 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…<br />
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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?
  5. 5. Are your data in a variety of hardcopy, spreadsheet, or personal database formats? Do you work with multiple labs and consultants?
  6. 6. Are you sending a large number of samples to labs for testing?
  7. 7. Are professionals and consultants making graphics and reports “by hand” or with spreadsheets and billing you per hour?
  8. 8. Are you paying a different consultant to discover lots of errors in your data months later?
  9. 9. 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 />
