Workshop Description:

This EQuIS workshop will introduce the skills and techniques to load, edit, manage and analyze environmental data using EarthSoft’s Environmental Quality Information System (EQuIS). EQuIS is the most widely used environmental decision support and data analysis system in the world.

The class will focus on the use of Electronic Data Deliverables (EDDs) for the collection of data, and the use of ArcGIS for the visualization of data. Laboratory and field EDDs will be discussed.

Attendees will work with environmental spatial, geology and chemistry analytic data. Attendees will discuss both contractual and technical modification to data collection workflows that have been proven to dramatically improve productivity and efficiency. Among topics of discussion are:

  • Laboratory EDD specifications and statements of work (SOWs)
  • Use of EDP to enforce and check the EDDs and SOWs
  • Field data collection programs and field EDDs
  • Workflows to merge field and lab data
  • Integration of EQuIS data with EnviroInsite, MODFLOW and other common data analysis and decision support tools


Janet Magurn is the President and Co-Founder of EarthSoft. Ms. Magurn guides all software development at EarthSoft related to EDDs and consults regularly with several US states and EPA Regions, many consultants, industrials and labs. Ms. Magurn has trained over a thousand EQuIS users throughout the world. Most recently, Ms. Magurn trained over 150 labs and consultants on behalf of EPA Region 2, in New York City.
