Geodasy used to handle BGS data

THE BRITISH Geological Survey is using Geodasy from AF Howland Associates to manage electronic data supplied by outside sources.

BGS is undertaking a massive programme of reorganisation of the way it manages its survey data, information and collections (see page 20).

Geodasy will be used to handle AGS files and data in its own native format.

BGS is also proposing to use the software to process its paper records, making re-printing more efficient.

Norwich-based consultant AF Howland says the database capability of the package is ideally suited to store borehole and laboratory data. It can be linked to geographical information systems.

The firm says data storage is efficient because information is not held as image files.
