Introduction
  • gINT Software Products for Geotechnical and Environmental Professionals

    Since 1986 gINT has offered innovative solutions to help engineering professionals manage geo-data and generate customizable reports. Today, gINT's innovative, powerful and time-saving software solutions are used by leading transportation authorities, state and federal agencies, and civil engineering firms worldwide.

    There are many advantages to gINT and particularly the new Version 7. First, gINT offers a user-friendly relational database system that enables the user to fully control the design of databases, reports and symbol libraries. An unlimited number of database types and report styles can be created. The customizability of gINT enables you to get exactly the types of results you desire.

    To make data entry easy, the new Version 7 of gINT also offers a choice of input modes: the standard spreadsheet-style mode, or the new Graphical User Mode.



    gINT Pro

    gINT Professional is gINT's all-inclusive cornerstone product, offering eight different report styles including borehole logs, fence diagrams, graphs, histograms, graphical tables, text tables, text documents and graphical text documents. Because gINT is completely customizable, an unlimited number of reports and databases can be defined within each report style. Powerful import and export capabilities and sophisticated data interrogation tools help gINT interface well with other industry programs. The program also contains built-in drawing tools for reports, symbols and general applications, as well as a built-in PDF-generator.

    The new Version 7 of gINT Professional provides a full suite of customizable reporting and data mangement tools -- everything from borehole logs to fence diagrams to graphs and tables and lab testing -- in an easy-to-use interface. The program also offers a powerful set of capabilities to help automate daily tasks. Because all data is efficiently stored in completely customizable database, you can easily access, evaluate, and compare whatever data you choose, even for small projects.

    The new Version 7 of gINT Pro makes working with your log data even easier. The new Graphical Input Mode option enables you to input data on an image of your log while the database records your data in the background. Even the newest user can use it as a visual roadmap to enter and manipulate data directly, without having to know the details of the underlying database structure. Meanwhile, your data remains accessible in the database for future needs.

    Nine report styles and lab testing are included:

    • Borehole logs
    • Fence Diagrams
    • Graphs
    • Histograms
    • Graphical Tables
    • Graphical Text Documents
    • Text Tables
    • Text Documents
    • Site Maps

    Fourteen lab testing reports are also included:

    • Atterberg Limit
    • Sieve Analysis
    • Density Testing
    • Moisture Content
    • Liquid and Plastic Limits
    • Compaction (Proctor) Tests
    • Hydrometer Analysis
    • Fine Specific Gravity
    • Direct Shear
    • Consolidation
    • Unconfined Compression
    • Falling Head Permeability
    • California Bearing Ratio (CBR) (free download)
    • Concrete Testing (free download)

    Additional lab tests may be created within the gINT Program, either by the end user or by a gINT consultant.

    Completely customizable

    Though all gINT programs come with standard templates, gINT is fully customizable, and you can use it to create an unlimited number of databases and reports of your own. gINT offers many tools to help you with data entry and reporting. For example, you can create your own look-up tables to enhance data accuracy, and you can also create "smart forms" that reshape themselves depending on the presence or absence of data. gINT Pro also offers its own programming toolbox, gINT Rules, that enables users to create and automate routines within gINT.

    Expressions and calculations

    gINT Pro helps make calculating by hand a thing of the past. The program will do calculations for you with very little setup, extracting the numbers you need from your database. Having the program do your calculations for you saves you time and money with every usage.

    gINT "Smart Forms"

    gINT's "smart forms" enable you to simplify your report templates by rolling every contingency into one. If, for example, well construction information is present on one borehole but absent on another, the "smart form" will automatically add or leave out a well data column in the log. Instead of printing a blank column when well data doesn't exist, the content of the rest of the log automatically expands to fill the space. You can therefore avoid creating new templates for every data contingency.

    gINT "Symbol Power"

    gINT comes with a huge symbol library to give you added flexibility. With nearly 1,000 symbols that can be combined to make a near-infinite variety, you'll have everything you need for your own distinctive report generation.



    gINT Logs Plus

    gINT Logs Plus has nearly all of the functionality of gINT Pro, but with a limited range of reports (borehole logs and text tables only). Logs Plus is a perfect choice for professionals needing extensive import/export capabilities (for example, AGS and CSV files) but needing a program for production of borehole logs only. Logs Plus also offers the gINT drawing tools, native PDF generation and the ability to do database queries in input, as in the higher-level gINT products.

    Logs, AGS and more!


    gINT Logs Plus provides fully customizable borehole logs and text tables that are AGS-compliant. gINT also offers a free AGS-checker for AGS data-format verification. This program offers the same alternative data entry modes as gINT Professional and gINT Logs, namely, the classic spreadsheet-style input and the new Graphical Input Mode, which enables users to input data on an image of a log while the database records data in the background. The new Graphical Input Mode makes data entry a breeze for beginners used to working with data input in a graphical format.


    gINT Logs Plus offers all of the features of the gINT Logs program, plus the following:

    • A full-featured on-board drawing environment
    • More extensive import/export capabilities
    • Ability to compare databases
    • The ability to write gINT RUles (TM) code for custom programming applications

    The following import/export formats are supported:

Like other gINT Products, gINT Logs has a native PDF generator and offers a choice of data input modes, spreadsheet or graphical user interface, making data entry user-friendly. Upgrades are available from this product to a higher-level gINT product should the need arise for additional functionality in the future, protecting your initial investment in gINT.

    gINT Logs is a high-quality, low-cost software package for generating customizable logs. The new Version 7 offers the same alternative data entry modes as gINT Professional and gINT Log Plus, namely, the classic spreadsheet-style input and the new Graphical Input Mode, which enables users to input data on an image of a log while the database records data in the background. The new Graphical Input Mode makes data entry a breeze for beginners used to working with data input in a graphical format. The spreadsheet style is also available to users who prefer the classic input mode.

    With superior gINT engineering and many of the features of the full gINT Professional package, this program simplifies data entry and report generation. Because the program is upgradable to higher-level products such as gINT Professional, it is a solid foundation for geotechnical data management and reporting that will continue to work to meet your company's needs over many years.

    gINT Logs offers much more than other logging programs. As with all gINT Programs, it is a fully customizable database management system that can be programmed to perform a wide variety of sophisticated tasks, calculations and automated routines to save time and effort. gINT logs also offers a variety of data input tools to help streamline data entry. For example, you can create lookup tables that standardize and speed up data entry. Because your customizable choices appear in a drop-down list, this means fewer keystrokes. You can also create your own required fields, default values and descriptions, which facilitate fast and accurate data entry. Required fields and default values help ensure data integrity, while descriptions helps the person entering the data learn the requirements of particular fields.

    An extensive library of nearly 1,000 symbols gives you added flexibility in designing your logs. You can add to the symbol list with your own custom symbols as well.
