“Easy Geotechnical GIS” is one step closer with latest HoleBASE SI release

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Keynetix released another upgrade to their Geotechnical Data Management System, HoleBASE SI, earlier this month with a host of new features aimed at helping contractors and consultants maximise the use of their geotechnical data.

The new release, which is the 3rd major upgrade this year, has 15 new features and upgrades including bulk update tools, XYZ export to allow simple transfer of data into third-party applications, additional geology summary report views and statistics, improved section scaling and summary graphing capability.  However the main talking point among users has been the inclusion of SHP and DXF import support.

“HoleBASE SI began its exciting geotechnical GIS journey with the inclusion of aerial photography and BGS data in the July update.” said Gary Morin, Technical Director at Keynetix “Now we have added the ability to upload AutoCAD and SHP datasets that can be shared across projects and users can start to extend its capabilities to include their own datasets.  This coupled with the ability to upload project site drawings has moved the program further into the exciting GIS arena.”

The new features list also includes a number of improvements for borehole log and section production which will help a number of new customers streamline their report production.  It also includes an upgrade to the HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel® that now enables users to create their own reporting dashboards and summary plots.

“HoleBASE SI now includes tools to help users perform more comprehensive and efficient Desk Studies by assimilating both spatial and none-spatial data from multiple sources” commented Carl Grice, Development Director at Keynetix “With this version rolled out the team are already developing the next release with enhanced features for contaminated land assessment and rapid data entry currently being tested internally and scheduled for release early next year.”

The new version was released just before Keynetix’s User Group Meeting in Birmingham where the new features were shown to over 100 users for the first time.  The upgrade is available free of charge to users with a valid Maintenance Agreement.  For a full list of new features click the links below:
