The material contained within this user guide is designed to provide an introduction and reference for the OpenGround package.
OpenGround Professional is a comprehensive data management and borehole logging software pack-age for geotechnical and geoenvironmental site investigations.
The software is a fully functional borehole logging program which also allows you to draw cross sections, query and report your data, or export data to AutoCAD and Excel.
The overall scope of data covers geological stratigraphy and classification of soils for engineering purposes, in situ testing including CPT & dynamic probe testing, laboratory test results including contaminant testing, down hole geophysics, and monitoring data.
OpenGround Professional has the ability to distribute data where required, and its impressive range of data editing and manipulation tools, makes it the most versatile application in its class. Each project can accommodate thousands of exploratory hole records with minimal effect on performance.
Primarily, this document is structured to deal with concepts and functionality in a logical and theme-based manner. As such, the guide can be read progressively. At the start of each chapter you will find an introduction section that gives you an overview of the capabilities of the system related to the chapter. You may find it useful to start by reading these introductions only as this should give you an overview of what OpenGround Professional can do and which parts you need to learn more about. Further information can be found regarding a topic by the use of the related articles section of each page or elsewhere on Bentley Assist.
Numbered paragraphs are used to describe step by step instructions on a task or series of related tasks. The pipe (|) symbol denotes options on a cascading menu - as in Manage | Tests.
