EQuIS® Open Training August 23-25, at Minnesota PCA

May 16, 2011

Class Description:
This Open Training will provide the skills and techniques for managing and analyzing environmental data using EarthSoft’s Environmental Quality Information System (EQuIS). Attendees will gain experience working with environmental geology and analytical chemistry data. Workflow automation and web reporting will be covered using EQuIS Enterprise. Attendees will learn to use EQuIS Professional with several widely used reporting, visualization, and analysis tools which may include EnviroInsite, HoleBASE, EVS/EnterVol and others.

While the first portion of the class will be focused on the implementation and use of EQuIS, the final day will include in-depth training on the EQuIS for ArcGIS module. Attendees will learn how to import EQuIS data into ESRI’s ArcGIS® application and learn how to present data visually using pie charts, graduated symbols and contours. A site characterization exercise will train attendees to access data in the ArcView GIS spatial environment. Other topics include:

  • Spider Diagrams (aka chem data boxes or tabular labels)
  • 3rd party interface integration
  • ArcGIS 3D Analyst (ArcScene) integration
  • Animated graphics and 3D labeling utilities

Location and Requirements
This course will be held at MPCA, 520 Lafayette Rd N, St. Paul, Minnesota (Training Room 1, lower level).

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.

Cost and Registration
The early registration fee of $1,500 ($1,800 for registration after August 10, 2011) includes instruction, and hand-on use of EQuIS, and class notes. To register for the course, please fill out the included Training Registration form and fax to 503-345-0212 or email to training@earthsoft.com.

EarthSoft Announces Collaborative Development and Marketing Agreement with QED Environmental Systems

March 18, 2009

…Real Time Data Submissions to EQuIS Clouds…

EarthSoft today announced a collaborative development and marketing agreement with QED Environmental Systems (QED). This work will automate logging and loading of well level and flow monitoring data from Retriever products directly to EQuIS 5. QED will support the EQuIS EDDs using QED wireless data collection solutions.

EarthSoft and QED see significant added benefit to both client bases with the integration of real-time, wireless data collection into EQuIS. These benefits include increased reliability, accuracy, and timeliness for this data.
