GeODin Essentials enables working with geological logs, CPTSs, SPTs, samples, groundwater & well design. This data can be easily added to cross-sections and site plans.
GeODin Professional includes many additional features for client/server databases, GIS integration, measurement analysis and presentation.
GeODin Portal allows your desktop GeODin databases to be shared online, so your customers simply view geoinformation in a browser.
GeODin Shuttle is our free software program that can be used on site or in the office, wherever additional GeODin workplaces are required. GeODin Shuttle contains many features from GeODin Essentials and GeODin Professional in demo modus. The databases created are fully compatible with Version 9 GeODin Essentials, GeODin Professional and GeODin Portal.
The recommended system requirements are PCs running Windows 10 (32- and 64-bit) with 4 GB RAM and a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 px. GeODin may also be run from a Windows 2012 Server or
Citrix. Previous Windows operating systems and RAM configurations may work, but these are not supported. By default GeODin data is stored in a Microsoft Access® database (note that you do not
need a Microsoft Access license). When working with client/server databases the appropriate database drivers must also be installed.
GeODin can be used as a stand-alone program or integrated in a multi-user network. Integrated contextual help is provided in English and German. GeODin is designed, programmed and distributed exclusively by Fugro.
With GeODin Essentials you can present geological layers, CPTSs, groundwater, well design, soil parameters, samples, core photos and tables. Preconfigured templates are provided which are user customisable for different content and paper sizes. Template management is simplified by using layout collections, layout snippets and quick settings. Multilingual borehole logs can be printed using the automated translations for both text and fill patterns.
Cross-sections and site plans
Assistants help you in the quick creation of cross-sections and site plans. Using the XYZ borehole positions, cross-sections and plans can be created from multiple projects stored in your GeODin database. Define lines of section, turning points, projection, vertical & horizontal scales and paper format (10 x 10m). Integration of wells & groundwater, CPTs, lab analyses and other geotechnical and environmental parameters can be saved as scenarios and reused in further sections and plans.
Symbols and queries
GeODin symbols can be used to code different types of boreholes, whilst overlap free text labelling can be chosen for site plans with dense concentrations of boreholes. GeODin queries allow the contents of thousands of data records to be searched almost instantaneously, for both individual users or GeODin teams.
User customizable GeODin dictionaries allow you to add new codes and fill patterns. When interpreting soil horizons and rock layers in cross-sections, you may choose between freehand and automatic construction of layer boundaries between profiles. The polygons created are fully editable, allowing adjustments for local stratigraphic variations.
GeODin Professional provides data collection, organisation & analysis. The user definable configuration options allow customisation of data structure, lists, parameters and formulae. GeODin Professional includes many different types of graphical presentation, specialist hydrogeological diagrams, statistical reports and unit conversion. GeODin data can be stored in leading client/server databases, either commercial products or open source alternatives.
GeODin Professional contains all the features of GeODin Essentials, plus the following features:
GIS features in GeODin Professional:
Basic GIS Extension functions require no GeODin installation. GeODin functions require a GeODin Professional licence.
Using GeODin Portal you can quickly publish a GeODin database to the web in a few easy steps. The basis is a GeODin map document. Once you have created a set of GeODin layouts to display your geoinformation and made links to enable navigation between the layouts, you’re all set. By adding the GeODin Service to your GeODin installation you can manage GeODin databases as websites. Simply define which layout is to be the starting page for each database you want to share. Alternatively, conventional layouts without links can be used to provide up-to-date status reports in an existing IT system.
Click on the above link to see GeODin databases live on the web. Each database contains boreholes from well known locations, though the geo-information presented is fictitious. At these sites geological and geotechnical data, water levels and environmental parameters have been recorded. Selecting a borehole displays this information as geological profiles, well design, samples, CPTs and photos. Measurement data is also available for single points or groups shown as time series, reports, statistics, or in specialist graphics such as anion and cation plots, Piper & Stiff diagrams.
GeODin Portal requires the installation and configuration of the GeODin Service (a Windows® service application). The service has a HTTP web server module which can be used to create images and HTML pages. Settings for the GeODin Service are managed in the GeODin Service Controller. GeODin Portal uses system databases which are available to all users, rather than personalised database connections, specific to only one user. To complement the on-screen display, GeODin Portal can use GeODin layout collections to publish PDF reports and provide data download links in CSV and JSON formats. GeODin Portal replaces all previous GeODin Server editions.
On the road
GeODin Shuttle makes an ideal addition to a field computer, so that drilling data and other geo-information can be captured on site without the need for a full GeODin licence. GeODin databases, projects and boreholes can be created and the installation customised by installing additional object types and standards. The databases can be transferred by email or simply copied to an USB drive. GeODin Shuttle can be further extended on site by adding new codes, fill patterns and symbols to GeODin dictionaries.
In the office
GeODin Shuttle can also be integrated in an office set up where other GeODin licences are in use. Databases created with GeODin Shuttle use the same Microsoft Access® database format as full GeODin editions and hence the data collected can be read and used by colleagues in the office with GeODin Essentials and GeODin Professional. Individual boreholes, projects or complete databases can be transferred within the GeODin user interface. New dictionary codes created in the field can be synchronised with the office installation.
GeODin Shuttle 9 contains many features from GeODin Essentials and GeODin Professional in demo modus. Hence you can try out creating geological cross- sections and site plans, design you own GeODin layouts and reports, or try out time series, pie charts, Stiff and Piper diagrams. Please note that you cannot save or print these graphic files.
All graphics are displayed with a demo modus overlay, so that screenshots or printed output is not suitable for professional use. However the underlying data records are fully compatible with Version 9 GeODin Essentials, GeODin Professional and GeODin Portal. Version 8 and earlier databases can be read but saving will convert them to a Version 9 only format.
