Introducing ESdat Server Version 3
We're proud to announce that we will be releasing ESdat Server Version 3 early in January 2018 with some exciting new features.
EScIS pride ourselves on listening to and understanding our clients as the best source of development. We're proud to announce that we will be releasing ESdat Server Version 3 early in January 2018 with some exciting new features.
LSPECS - Simplified & Sayonara Silverlight!
LSPECS has been rebuilt from the ground up with some significant improvements and upgrades.
With Silverlight gone, LSPECS can now be used through other browsers, including Chrome (or you can continue to use Internet Explorer).
Simplified interface - - LSPECS menus have been simplified, removing the wizards.
To capture or modify most data, simply click 'Add' or 'Edit' and enter your values directly.
Schedules - Monitoring Programs are now called Schedules and have been simplified to focus on the recurrence of a Monitoring Round.

Reference Database - Maintaining ESdat Server becomes even easier
For clients operating ESdat Server we've made it easier to the keep following critical elements up to date:
- Chemistry Profiles
- Unit Conversions and
- Environmental Standards
ESdat Server 3 enables users to sync and compare against the relevant ESdat Online Server within your region. ESdat Online Servers are maintained in North America, Australia and England.
Keep up to date with Emerging Compounds (such as PFAS) by viewing and comparing against those within ESdat Online and add new compounds to your system as required.
Chemistry Profiles (e.g. Chem Name/Order/Group and Output Units) can also be compared with the ESdat Online Reference Chemistry Profile, to keep your system up to date. You can also propose changes to the Reference Profile by using the integrated suggestion function.
Compare your Environmental Standards with those on our Reference Database, then import those you need with just a few mouse clicks.
This provides an alternative to importing Environmental Standards from http://www.esdat.net/Environmental_Standards.aspx, (which will still be maintained).
Users retain the ability to customise the Environmental Standards to their own needs.

Map Layouts - add WMS & WFS to get a bigger picture
In addition to ESdat Desktop, ESdat Server now also supports Map Layouts for Hosted and Onsite installations, greatly enhancing the ability to visualise and interpret your data.
GIS layers can be added to the ESdat Server Map View utilising WMS or WFS layers (Web Map/Feature Service).
Many free WMS layers available online (e.g. OpenStreet Maps) and WFS layers will typically be managed and published by your GIS team.
Map Layouts are managed by Admin users and can be accessed by clicking the Layers button on any map screen (Locations Portal, Chemistry Map).
As with Table and Chemistry Profiles, Map Layouts can be customised depending on your needs and easily selected from the drop-down menu, so you will always have ready access to the correct Map Layout for your Project.
