Management package for instrumentation data


FUGRO GEOTECHNICAL Services has developed a software package for geotechnical instrumentation data management.

The Geotechnical Instrumentation Management System (GIMS) was developed for projects with large numbers of geotechnical instruments.

'GIMS makes instrumentation readings available to authorised users as soon as they are entered, and can automatically notify users as soon as readings from an instrument exceeds predefined levels, ' said Fugro Hong Kong director Cyril Chan.'This allows engineers to take prompt action when required.'

GIMS is a client/server database system based on the database application Oracle.

Users access GIMS using computers with a network connection to the server hosting the database.

The connection can be over a local area network, a wide area network connecting different offices, or a dial-up telephone connection.

Fugro said it also planned to add access over the internet.

The firm said the software was compatible with most commonly used geotechnical instruments and the readings held in the database could be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.
