Topics to include how to improve subsurface data in GIS interface
Santa Rosa, CA – September 9, 2009 – gINT Software, Inc.
gINT Software will be hosting a series of webinars in September and in October covering a wide variety of subsurface data management topics. The series, based on a successful August series, will be presented by Salvatore Caronna, president and founder of gINT Software. "The new gINT Webinar series is very popular,” according to Caronna. “Attendees find it highly informative on a broad spectrum of issues, from the benefits of implementing GIS for displaying subsurface data to reasons for moving to enterprise software.”
gINT Software builds its September series on the two most popular webinar topics, GIS and Enterprise. The first September webinar, titled “ Subsurface Data in a GIS Environment” will offer engineers concrete information on how to add the dimension of subsurface data to ArcGIS and Google Earth. In recognizing that the GIS environment offers a unique and important perspective on project information, participants will see how to use GIS to visualize and correlate subsurface data. The second September webinar, “gINT Enterprise: Managing Your Organization-Wide Subsurface Data” will show engineers how to efficiently manage varying types of data and how they can consolidate their subsurface data into a central enterprise database and create a standard set of consistent reports.
The first October webinar, “Best Practices in Subsurface Data Management”will demonstrate why “good” data is necessary in order for engineers to make sound decisions and how good data management not only streamlines the business process, but also decreases costs by enabling engineers to easily find and reuse data. The second October webinar, “Leveraging the Value of Your Legacy Subsurface Data,” will show engineers the process of turning years’ worth of legacy data into a usable resource.
“I signed up for the gINT Subsurface Data Webinars not knowing what to expect, just knowing that we’re using GIS more and more in other areas and wondering how gINT might interface with Arcview to help us use data more efficiently,” said attendee Gwen Archer of Biggs & Matthews Environmental. “ So far the course has enlightened us not only about specific immediate changes we might make to the way we use gINT to streamline data entry but also how we might effectively improve our subsurface data management as our need to use GIS data grows.”
“The feedback we have gotten from attendees has been positive and encouraging,” says Caronna. “It is definitely time for taking subsurface data management to the next level."

According to James Miller of GeoEngineers, Inc., the most significant recent technological advances in geotechnical engineering are LiDAR, GIS-based data management, and advanced analysis of soil-structure interaction. Read his article at DJC.com. Thanks to iCivilEngineer […]
KeyLAB’s rate card and invoices features are very powerful but often underused. If you run a geotechnical laboratory, you know what a challenge it is to keep up with the paperwork side of the business! […]
The O’Reilly Where 2.0 conference just wrapped up last week in Burlingame, CA. It is a big deal for developers, geographers, GIS developers, GPS equipment manufacturers and anyone else interested in location web services, GIS, mashups, and the so-called Geoweb. There were two presentations by some high profile players that may be of interest to the readers of GeoPrac.net. I have video versions of both after the break.
First, a presentation titled "State of the GeoWeb" given by Google Earth and Maps Director, John Hanke with some help from Jack Dangemond of ESRI. I think it gives you some interesting insights into the direction things are headed, particularly with some of the upcoming releases of ESRI GIS software and the interplay between location data that people have been producing for some time now and new ways of tapping into it using the web. Kind of a long presentation at around 30 minutes.
Second, Geoff Zeiss of Autodesk, Inc. (makers of AutoCad etc.) gives a presentation titled "Convergence of Architectural and Engineering Design and Location Technology". It deals with bridging the information created by different disciplines such as engineers, architects, trades and contractors into something more productive and usable using techniques such as 3D visualization and simulation. Length is approximately 15 minutes.
