This EarthSoft Office Hour video, presented by Marc Bate, EarthSoft’s senior ArcGIS developer.
EQuIS for ArcGIS 5.5 supports ArcGIS 10 and can create layers for all of your chemical analytes, or every month of water level measurements, in just one operation. With EZView queries, results can be returned to ArcGIS as a group layer for each unique value found in specified fields, e.g. sample date or chemical name. The resulting group layer can even be selected as the source layer in our Contours with Surfer module for contours for every sub layer in only a single operation.

Anthony Battle, of Agip ENI and KCO, Recommends EarthSoft for Data Management and Systems Implementation

July 28, 2011

“After identifying the need to create a standardised and open platform approach to environmental data management at a Euro-Asia scale, I brought in Mitch and Earthsoft to help design, configure, test, deploy and support EQUIS. So successful was the result, that we developed EQUIS to also accommodate our Metocean and Geotechnical data. Earthsoft delivered and now support the best in class EQUIS model. Highly recommended.” July 14, 2011
