EDGE

The EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE) is a data collection application designed for field use. EDGE can capture a wide range of field monitoring data (e.g., locations, samples, measurements, observations, and inspections) as well as images and sounds. Data is entered directly into tablets or laptop computers, and then submitted by email to laboratories and the EQuIS database. Thus, eliminating the need for handwritten field logbooks.

 

Within the EQuIS workflow, EDGE can be operated with or without the EQuIS Sample Planning Module (SPM). EDGE can use a blank EDD, an SPM EDD, or a template EDD. A template EDD can be generated by either running the EDGE Field EDD report from EQuIS Professional without selecting an SPM task or by partially entering data into EDGE (such as a list of locations) and saving the incomplete EDD for later use.
