Freestone Advances Client Practices in Geologic Data Management
Freestone Environmental Services arranged and hosted a one-day data management workshop consisting of presentations given by experts from Schlumberger Water Services, the developers of Hydro GeoAnalyst (also called HGA) and our own staff. Hydro GeoAnalyst is an all-in-one groundwater and environmental data management software that integrates a complete range of easy-to-use analysis and reporting tools, with a powerful yet flexible SQL Server database technology. Freestone has used Hydro GeoAnalyst to manage data for over 2000 wells including their spatial coordinates, construction details, lithology, geophysics and chemistry. These databases are easily queried, used for input to groundwater flow and contaminant transport models, create conceptual site models, and for graphical output such as cross-sections, fence diagrams, and 3-D solid earth models. Two prime contractors to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Hanford Site have subsequently made the decision to standardize their technical working groups on Hydro GeoAnalyst.
