Louisiana Transportation Research Center Expands pLog Enterprise Usage

Dataforensics was contracted to conduct the research and create a plan to integrate and implement a
customized data management system for DOTD. The work incorporated tasks and strategies that required
expertise in geotechnical engineering, database systems, GIS technologies, process fl ow, as well as software
development and integration.

“This project ultimately developed a comprehensive geotechnical data management system to streamline the
processes for borehole, lab testing, CPT, in-situ vane, and test pile load test data, while providing long-term
availability of the data via a web-based GIS portal,” said Gautreau. “By standardizing the database structure,
incorporating validation rules, and creating custom reports, DOTD personnel in various sections can more
easily access and report their geotechnical data while simultaneously improving the quality and reliability of the
data.” said Gavin Gautreau, P.E., Senior Geotechnical Research Engineer
