Upcoming Office Hours – EnviroInsite 7 – September 2, 2010

August 25, 2010

HydroAnalysis’s EnviroInsite7 is a environmental data visualization package designed with the needs of the practicing hydrogeologist in mind. You can get a full idea of the application capabilities by visiting www.enviroinsite.com. EQuIS users are particularly fortunate in having access to EQuIS Pro reports that generate input files for EnviroInsite and because they receive a complimentary single-seat license of EnviroInsite with each license of EQuIS Professional. There is also a new EQuIS Pro report coming with EQuIS release 5.5 that generates boring logs in EnviroInsite.

In June of this year, we released a major upgrade to EnviroInsite. EnviroInsite7 includes many new capabilities including the ability to tap into maps from online Web Mapping Services, trend analysis, expansion of integrated hatch patterns, improvements to the boring log routines, expanded help-file style documentation, a faster graphics library, and improvements to the interface through incorporation of .NET control features.

In this Office Hours session, Bruce Jacobs, HydroAnalysis’s head of development will demonstrate the new features of EnviroInsite7.

This session will be held at 11am EDT (-5 GMT) (This session is nearly full) and 6pm EDT (-5 GMT) on August 5th.

To sign up for a session, please send us an email at officehours@earthsoft.com or register on the Office Hours page and indicate your session of preference. Note that spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

EarthSoft Announces a Vapor Intrusion EDD Format and Schema Additions

August 2, 2010

EarthSoft announced today a new Vapor Intrusion module for EQuIS, consisting of a Vapor Intrusion (VI) EDD, schema additions and VI reports.

The VI EDD was developed under the guidance of New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. This EDD was designed by several state staff and consultants. The VI EDD is part of NYSDEC’s EDD format. Information about NYSDEC’s EDD can be found on their website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/62440.html. One round of extensive reviews is complete and the EDD is available for further review at this time.

The purpose of Vapor Intrusion data collection is to evaluate the presence of volatile chemicals which move from a subsurface source into the indoor air of overlying or adjacent buildings. The subsurface source can be either contaminated groundwater or contaminated soil which releases vapors into the pore spaces in the soil. Vapor Intrusion information and guidance documentation can be found on NYSDEC’s website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/2588.html.

The Vapor Intrusion format includes data related to structures and buildings at the sampling site, vapor sampling, sampling methods, field data and the conditions at the time of the sampling events. Test and result information is stored in the Lab sections of the format. Vapor Intrusion sampling includes data about floor materials, slab thickness, sealants, PID readings, heating systems, heating fuel, vacuum gauges and other relevant information.

If you would like to review this EDD, please contact Kristin Garboski at EarthSoft, kristin.garboski@earthsoft.com.

EQuIS demonstration videos for our products are available at EarthSoft’s Community Center and YouTube channel – http://community.earthsoft.com  and www.youtube.com/earthsoft.
