DIGGS utilizes Geography Markup Language (GML) compliant eXtensible Markup language (XML) schema and will allow ‘reference values’ or ‘pick lists’ to be referenced from any source. The DIGGS model is extensive and with the flexibility of XML can bring together data from many existing formats. The format can utilize style-sheets and tools to show data in many of the well-know formats including: SEDD, EDMANS, AGS, COSMOS, EZ EDD, and others. Several DIGGS compatible tools will be available at the time of the release of DIGGS version 1.0. Many geotechnical and geoenvironmental software vendors are already including DIGGS translators in their software.
