Keynetix Launch Ground Breaking Mapping Technology for Geotechnical Engineers at Geotechnica 2013

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 Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

Keynetix launched their latest build of HoleBASE SI Professional at Geotechnica 2013 and this release includes technology to enable geotechnical engineers to instantly preview their site investigation data alongside BGS data and aerial photography coverage.

The BGS OpenGeoscience mapping sets, including the 1:500,000 Bedrock and Superficial Deposits are now available to turn on in the background of the HoleBASE SI project mapping window together with Microsoft’s Bing mapping and aerial photography.  Maps are licenced for commercial use, including the supply of hard copy reports.  Mapping data is streamed from the internet, so customers do not need the IT infrastructure to store and serve the large mapping sets.

“The key drivers behind OpenGeoscience was to allow more people to access core geological information and to encourage businesses to innovate with our data” said Geraldine Wildman from the BGS “We are delighted that Keynetix have implemented BGS OpenGeoscience mapping in a desktop product and are really excited by how this move will increase the use of BGS data within the geotechnical industry.

There are a total of 15 BGS mapping sets in HoleBASE SI including: Borehole Records, Water Wells, Site Investigation Reports, Drill Core, Samples, Onshore Hydrocarbon Wells, Geophysical Logs, Well Water Levels, Aquifer Properties, Geochemistry, 1:50K Linear Features, 1:50K Mass Movement, 1:50K Artificial Ground, 1:50K Superficial Deposits and 1:50K Bedrock.

As well as the BGS data, Keynetix have included Bing Aerial photography, Bing Roads, Bing Hybrid (aerial and roads) into the release.  “The addition of commercial licences for Aerial Photography and Bing mapping data is a major benefit to our customers” said Roger Chandler, Managing Director of Keynetix.  “Many of our users have been confused by the prohibitive Google Earth Licencing conditions and will be pleased to learn that the commercial licence in HoleBASE SI means they can use the mapping data in their reports without paying additional royalty fees.”

The new HoleBASE SI release also includes full document management, together with the first full release of the HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel and the HoleBASE Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D and many other exciting new additions.
