makes geotechnical data easier to share and use.
Presenting geotechnical data in a well-organised, systematic and easy to access format has long been a challenge given the quantity and variety of laboratory, in situ characterisation and field testing data. Not to mention the spatial distribution of this data across a site. Datamap was developed to address this challenge. More than $2 million worth of test data is already available on Datamap, much of it from the CGSE's Australian National Field Testing Facility in Ballina in Northern New South Wales, which was established to improve engineering designs in soft soils. The use of the app is growing worldwide. After assessing several options, the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute chose to use Datamap because of its user friendliness, enabling it to easily share data from five field test sites across Norway.
