GIS example


The Environmental Monitoring module allows users to import, manage, analyse, graph and report time and depth series data for a wide variety of sample sites and publish the results for other users to use or view. The spatial integration of sample sites and other features with interactive maps and documents (e.g. click on a borehole and view the borehole log, photo etc.), means all data and documentation is easily accessible and stored in one centralised system.

The module manages the whole investigation data chain, from the sample or measurement taken in the field (using hand-held field computers or PDAs), through to the laboratory and then into the database where it is validated and published for other users and email notifications sent out where required. This joined up approach maintains a solid and defensible chain of custody, proper version control (no more spreadsheet ambiguities) and ensures that the data can be re-used into the future.

With this module you can:

    • Select different investigations and view sample site locations (boreholes, air, sediment, fish, milk, vegetation, groundwater monitoring stations etc.) in relation to other themes such as water bodies, buildings, geology or ecology.
    • Create new map layers called Spatial Analysis Themes that indicate all the sample sites where, for example determinand X has exceeded threshold Y.
    • Link documents to the map e.g. log or photographs to a sample site.
    • Dynamically generate customisable graphs of any of the monitoring data, add international Environmental Quality Standards (WHO, EU, Dutch drinking water etc.) or site specific licensing thresholds (e.g. upper and lower pH).
    • View analysis in molar concentrations where applicable.
    • Graph types include Time, Depth, Multilevel Depth and Multilevel Time series and Multi-Axis.
    • Save your graphs as either Private graphs or publish them for other members of the project to view (Public graphs).
    • Import and QA/QC the data on-line.
    • Email Notification - receive an email alert whenever a user defined threshold is exceeded following data upload.
    • Quickly create tabular reports using filters.
    • Use the DocsOnLineTM tool to produce data-integrated reports.
    • Export the data for use in other programs.
    • Receive field data from hand-held field computers using wireless communications (SIDTM).
    • Pass laboratory results to the Hazardous Waste Classification tool.
    • Use filters to create tabular reports for export of data into other formats.
