In 2020 Parsons engaged Dataforensics to assist with streamlining field data collection and reporting, below is a testimonial received as a result of their pLog Tablet deployment:

Parsons transitioned from traditional handwritten boring logs to Dataforensics’ field tablet-based logging software, pLog, in the middle of a major drilling program. pLog allowed us to streamline our soil logging data entry process with consistent and comprehensive soil descriptions through the use of pull-down menus. Additionally, the speech-to-text feature allowed us to easily record and capture ancillary information, observations, and field notes. Beyond the soil logging capabilities, the pLog Configuration Tool software enabled us to further configure the data input/output on the fly to meet our evolving project needs.

pLog enabled us to transfer field data on a daily basis, which was then easily imported and integrated into our engineering software (gINT), resulting in a largely automated boring log and cross section generation process. The implementation of pLog on this project significantly reduced time spent on offsite data entry and boring log review, and allowed for timely and cost-effective production of high-quality field logs for our client.

The Dataforensics team was consistently responsive and knowledgeable. Their speed and dexterity enabled us to successfully develop and roll-out pLog in the middle of an active project, and their continued support allowed us to incorporate “quality of life” field crew feedback as well as changing project requirements.

Dr. Scott Deaton spoke with Business Radio X and we’ve got the recording!

Dataforensics on Business Radio X



Dataforensics has been selected to be a Premier Partner with Keynetix to represent and promote Keynetix geotechnical data software in North America.

Dataforensics and Keynetix software deployed in conjunction will allow users to collect (pLog Tablet), manage and report (HoleBASE SI, KeyLAB) their geotechnical and laboratory data seamlessly.

If you are frustrated with your current systems that aren’t able to communicate with each other, or face headaches getting data from different software to the other – reach out to to see if we can help!

Dataforensics and Keynetix are exhibiting at the STGEC in Biloxi, Mississippi November 7-10.

Dataforensics president, Dr. Scott Deaton, will be presenting on Single Source Data Entry through Data Interchange and how Missouri DOT’s data management capabilities have been revolutionized using Dataforensics and Keynetix products.

Additionally Dr. Deaton will reveal the latest details for support related to DIGGS (Data Interchange for Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists).

This conference has several presentations related to data management/data interchange; if you are wanting to learn about the latest advancements in our industry this will be a fantastic opportunity for you to see them firsthand.

Being a software company in a highly technical field, our tools and systems are highly configured and customized for each and every client. That being said, we thought it might be helpful to create a page on “How We Work”.

Many times we are asked if we can provide a free trial. While we would LOVE to do that, there is no “one size fits all” version of any of our tools.

For anyone who is on the fence about our software, we invite you to have a call with us to see if any of our systems would help overcome any challenges you face in data collection or data management of your valuable geotech and enviro data!

Dataforensics Hits the Road!

The months of April and May will see representatives of Dataforensics at two important events.

Dataforensics President Dr. Scott Deaton will be speaking at two upcoming events. If your current geo-environmental data life-cycle is giving you headaches, come listen and hear how these challenges can be overcome! April 11, 2016 at the Environmental Tech Summit in Raleigh, NC. More information at:

One month later, Dr. Deaton will also be speaking at the 2016 Southwest Geotechnical Engineering Conference in Olathe, Kansas on May 11th. Dr. Deaton will be speaking on “Single Source Data Entry” and what doors this will open for your data management processes! More information at:

To serve you better with even more space, we are moving to a new office at 2310 Parklake Drive, Suite 525, Atlanta, GA 30345. The move will be taking place the morning of Friday, March 11th. Please note that our phones will be down for an undetermined time that morning. We hope to have them restored by Noon Friday. Thank you for your patience as we transition to our new home.

Aggravated by your BORING log software? Surprised by overusage charges? Shocked by lack of new useful functionality? Stop by Dataforensics booth #202 at the Geotechnical & Structural Engineering Congress in Phoenix, AZ February 14-17, to see how Dataforensics and Keynetix products can help your organization increase your geotechnical understanding of your sites.

Dataforensics has been highlighted in a Research Project Capsule published December 2015 by the Louisiana Transportation Research Center (LTRC). The project capsule provides an overview of the efforts by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) and LTRC to connect various DOTD data sources in a single application. “For the first time, roughly 2,000 boring logs are available via the DOTD Intranet and GIS Server Technology.”.

The Project Capsule (15-1GT) in its entirety can be found here:
