EQuIS® Open Training June 14–16, Denver, Colorado
May 12, 2011
This EQuIS Training Class will provide the skills and techniques for managing and analyzing environmental data using EarthSoft’s Environmental Quality Information System, or EQuIS. Attendees will gain hands-on experience working with environmental geology and analytical chemistry data. Workflow automation and web techniques will be covered using EQuIS Enterprise. A site characterization exercise will train users to access data in the ArcView GIS spatial environment.
Additionally, this EQuIS Training Class will have a special emphasis on the EQuIS Sample Planning Module (SPM) and the EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE). Attendees will learn how to use EQuIS SPM to create tasks for the future, add contracts, methods and labs and also create Sample Analysis Plans that comply with USEPA standards. Students will learn how to check the completeness of scheduled sampling and non-sampling field activities. In addition to SPM, the training instruction will also focus on EDGE for collecting environmental field data, creating standardized Chains of Custody and generating Electronic Data Deliverables to import into EQuIS.
While much of the class will be focused on the implementation and use of EQuIS, discussion will also include critical data management principles such as:
- Developing standard operating procedures for data management
- Creating sampling plans
- Working with analytical labs
- Field procedures and data collection
Location and Requirements
This course will be held at 44 Union Boulevard, Suite 300, Lakewood, Colorado.
Please bring your own laptop for use during this training class. Instructions for downloading and installing EQuIS, visualization and analysis tools, and ArcGIS evaluation software will be provided two weeks prior to the training.
