Ground investigation field data such as driller’s borehole logs and engineer’s sampling or soil description records have conventionally been recorded on-site using pen and paper. These records are then retyped into specialist software for processing and sending to clients. This process is inefficient and prone to delays and occasional errors.
Recent developments in rugged and semi-rugged computers and other hand-held devices mean that it is now commercially effective to collect most forms of geotechnical and geoenvironmental data directly on-site using electronic methods.
