Title: Development and Implementation of Geotechnical Software
Contact: Edward J. Hoppe
Project No.: 87125
Target Date: 05/23/2008
Abstract: The objective of this project is to interact with VDOT’s Central Office Materials Division and District materials engineers and geologists to revise, develop and implement various pieces of software needed to update the process of geotechnical data entry and reporting. The design and construction of transportation projects require subsurface or geotechnical information.  Such data are compiled in a form of borehole logs, representing soil and rock conditions at particular locations.  VDOT has been using a commercial software package, called “gINT,” for this subsurface data entry and reporting. While “gINT” offers a good tool for subsurface data storage and reporting, it requires development of customized data-entry templates and output report formats to interact with other software products used by state departments of transportation.  Various needs have been identified, such as interfacing with MicroStation, Geopak and GPS data receivers.
