EQuIS for ArcGIS - Extension for the ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo desktop applications
EQuIS for ArcGIS
EarthSoft’s EQuIS for ArcGIS is an extension for the ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo desktop applications. With EQuIS for ArcGIS, users can query, report, and map the data that EQuIS manages, making it ideal for displaying and communicating project information.
EQuIS for ArcGIS supports the ArcMap Style gallery by providing a customizable EarthSoft style gallery, which is used when creating any of its automated map features, such as sample locations, color ramps, scale bars, etc.
The EQuIS for ArcGIS extension integrates the leading environmental software packages for specialized tasks. For example, contours created using EQuIS for ArcGIS and Surfer are brought back into the GIS, where they can be used in further analyses with output from other non-GIS applications, such as RockWorks for geologic cross-sections.
Users can query and present analytical data in several ways, including crosstab summary format. Adopting the Chemical Layer Builder, the selection is defined using a specific media (e.g. water, soil, or soil gas). When dealing with a single event (or sample points sampled only once), the data can be displayed for each sample location by assigning a symbol that indicates relative concentration (e.g. red concentric circles with white outlines at the midpoint of each sample). With the standard ArcMap info tool, you can browse for individual sample points, examining all available data or any desired subset.
With EQuIS EZView integrated into the GIS, reporting and time-series plots are offered for a variety of scenarios such as plotting concentration vs. time. Integration with both LogPlot and gINT software allows display of monitoring well completion diagrams and creation of boring logs on the fly, all from within the GIS.
EarthSoft’s EQuIS system makes cost-effective environmental data management and analysis a reality for many organizations. In addition to the desktop version of EQuIS, the high-end EQuIS Enterprise, based on SQL Server/Oracle data platform, allows regional/nationwide access to data over the Web.
EQuIS for ArcGIS interfaces with HoleBASE, EnviroInsite, RockWorks, LogPlot, GMS, gINT, EVS/MVS, Surfer, and other tools for creating boring logs, geologic fences, tabular labels (spider diagrams), and contours seamlessly from ArcMap and ArcScene.
Several non-environmental features enhancing ArcGIS are also included:
• 3D Preview Window for ArcMap
• Layer properties ‘Metadata’ tab for viewing and editing from ArcMap/ArcScene
• Create 3D Features module that creates multipatch geometries
- EQuIS table relationships are recreated in ArcGIS making it easy to incorporate facility information in GIS analysis or geoprocessing.
- Automatically place sample locations on maps.
- All layers use a customizable facility-specific symbol Style Gallery, helping standardize maps for production.
