PLog is PDA-based field borehole and well logging software
PLog, is the industry leader in borehole recording technology and is the most popular system of its kind on the market. PLog sets the geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering industry standard as a robust, flexible and user customisable PDA-based borehole logging tool.
PLog allows you to record more than just your soil and rock descriptions for each boring log
PLog enables you to record your borehole information including soil and rock sample information, soil and rock stratigraphy layers, environmental measurements such as those determined from PID and FID instruments, shear strength test results, drilling notes, blow count results, ground water observations, and monitoring well or inclinometer installation information for each borehole. All of your borehole information is organised and stored safely on the PDA. What is more, it is completely customisable.
You use simple PDA navigation to access your borehole field data in PLog
The effort spent clicking from screen to screen to add or review data is minimal. You would likely spend the same amount of time leafing through your field book to review a boring log as you would clicking through pages in PLog to review a soil description or test result for a borehole.
With PLog, input your data quickly and easily for each borehole by selecting from lists, buttons, and checkboxes
You select information from pre-populated drop down menus which aids in rapid data entry as well as standardisation within your organisation. You select boring log description items instead of writing them.
PLog speeds data entry by automatically repopulating data for you within a borehole and among boreholes
Your writing time is minimised because data for the borehole and borehole samples are automatically repopulated for subsequent boreholes and borehole samples with information you previously entered. Subsequent boreholes will have the same value until you change it.
PLog – the geotechnical and geoenvironmental software that helps you generate complete borehole logs – in seconds!
Borehole can be logs ready for review within minutes of downloading your borehole data to your computer. You use the HotSync function and the borehole data is uploaded from your PDA to your PC. Once your borehole data is in the PLog PC module, you can export it to applications such as gINT or LD4. With the click of a button your borehole data is in your boring log reporting software tool and you can print a completed draft boring log ready for review.
Customise PLog to fit your field data collection requirements for every borehole
PLog drop-down lists may be customised to suit your company requirements and standards. You can do both of these easily using the PLog Configuration Tool - the PC portion of PLog.
No typos – and input your borehole data once
Your borehole data is entered into an electronic device one time - in the field. This helps avoid typos and eliminates transcription time in the office from handwritten notes.
Consistent terminology and soil/rock description ordering and formatting on every boring log
You decide which values are in the drop down menus for geotechnical and geoenvironmental projects. Log data will not be a hodgepodge of styles from several engineers and geologists and the terminology used will be consistent and in a specific order from project to project, and borehole to borehole.
Your borehole data is validated by PLog in the field. You can no longer make small mistakes such as having very loose clay or an RQD greater than your recovery length.
PLog is AGS compliant
PLog is designed to be Association of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) compliant. Dataforensics has written more correspondence files than any organisation.
