Electronic management of environmental data continues to become increasingly standard. An integrated data management system provides much more than just the ability to archive data electronically. Companies and government agencies worldwide are reaping the benefits of data management in a relational database integrated with improved analytical tools and enhanced visualization applications. Benefits include being able to manage data more quickly and accurately which, in turn, contributes to better decision-making and response. ESRI’s ArcGIS and EarthSoft’s EQuIS for ArcGIS represent tools in the GIS realm to support scientists in these efforts and are an excellent example of software integration which leverages the value inherent in the data. Case studies illustrate key benefits gained and efficiencies realized by application integration.
