Steve Evason returns for the first webinar of 2017 to show you how to create your first borehole log template using Template Studio. This webinar is ideal if you have just started using Template Studio or are considering updating your borehole log designs.
The new build of the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D includes two new and exciting features that will be covered during this 30 minute webinar by Gary Morin.
Ensuring your equipment calibration records are up to date is an important part of the Lab manager's job and can have large consequences if not managed correctly. KeyLAB takes care of this regular task for you enabling you to stay within compliance
In this webinar Gary Morin will complete your free training on the final 4 new features that have been added to the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
In this presentation, Phil Child and Roger Chandler will review some of the problems and solutions for users working with Chemical data.
The first of 4 new Small Steps Webinars kick off today with a quick look through the new features in last month's releases of HoleBASE SI and KeyLAB. Although these were minor upgrades to the software there are still some big features and improvements made;
The HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel has undergone two major feature upgrades in the last few months, Report Paging and Pivot Table support and tahis webinar will cover both areas.
Roger Chandler will be presenting, and when Roger gets going on Pivot tables there is not much that can stop him!
This webinar is bound to be packed full of useful content and mind-blowing ideas for the use of Pivot Tables in the Extension for Microsoft Excel and an ideal opportunity for beginner and intermediate users to benefit from Roger's knowledge and enthusiasm for this new feature.
The use of Swim Lane Diagrams are referred to in "BS 8574:2014 - Code of practice for the management of geotechnical data for ground engineering projects"
In this webinar Roger Chandler will introduce Swim Lane Diagrams and go through their how their use can help you communicate how your team will collect, report and transfer data during a site investigation project.
During the webinar Roger will also cover the 2 Golden Rules of Data Entry and show how Swim Lane Diagrams can help you highlight where the rules are being broken and how to fix these them.
Once you have your geotechnical and environmental data in HoleBASE SI and a model generated in AutoCAD Civil 3D there are several ways in which you can use this model to calculate volumes of material.
In this webinar, with the help of a company called CADline, we will give an overview to calculating volumes in AutoCAD Civils and then demonstrate the different methods and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each one.
Phil Child will give a brief introduction on how to create Site Plans and Quick Sections in HoleBASE SI Professional and how to store section parameters and locations for future use.
In the second half of the webinar Steve Evason will then give a brief introduction on how to create your own Quick Section and Site Plan templates and explain the use of Dynamic Text on sections and site plans.
This webinar is a guide to the three different approaches that can be used to create your lithology descriptions within HoleBASE SI.
UK users have entered their geology descriptions into a free form text field or entered them using Quicklists. Users who use a description model based more on the ASTM methods are now starting to use the Advanced Description Builder (a Dataforensics Plugin) to automatically build the descriptions from components.
During this webinar Roger Chandler and Scott Deaton will introduce all three of these methods, show how they work and discuss the pros and cons of each method.
More and more of our customers are using the electronic scheduling tool in HoleBASE SI. Although the tool is easy to use there are a number of considerations that should be made when communicating your schedule to your laboratory and reviewing the data that is returned by them.
In this webinar Oliver Carnaby and Roger Chandler will go through some of the recent work they have been doing to make this process flow better and introduce some very useful Excel Extension reports that attendees will be able to download
In this webinar Oliver Carnaby and Roger Chandler will go through some of the recent work they have been doing to make this process flow better and introduce some very useful ways to get measure and invoices from KeyLAB.
For many years you've been able to download scans of paper borehole records from the British Geological Survey through HoleBASE SI. Now, with the help of Keynetix, the BGS are launching an exciting new service that will revolutionise the UK's borehole record archive.
Over the coming months they will start collecting, archiving and sharing digital borehole data in the AGS data and in this webinar you will learn how HoleBASE SI uses this new exciting service.
The Small Steps webinars this year are focused on increasing efficiency in all of your workflows and they will take place the first Friday of every month.
In the first of our Series 4 Small Steps Webinars, Steve Evason will take you through the steps to produce your templates more efficiently as he talks you through the uses of Master Templates, Log Strips and Strip Sets, Report Profiles and Default Templates.
He'll also give you some top tips to speed up Template Creation with an exclusive preview of some upcoming functionality that will revolutionise the way you create your templates.
In the second of our Series 4 Small Step Webinars, Oliver Carnaby will run you through how to secure your data through multiple techniques involving both HoleBASE SI and KeyLAB.
This will include a run through of the new and improved security setup in HoleBASE SI, including how to use Active Directory for your logins. They will also demonstrate how using security roles effectively can control the integrity of your data, preventing a disaster from an unauthorised source.
In this Small Step Webinar Steve Evason and Gary Morin will take the lead in inspiring our users to maximise the use of their strips to show a wide variety of data in a number of different formats throughout the life of a project.
In the first half of the webinar, Steve will take you through creating a simple strip within Template Studio, then start adding some complexities to show graphs, charts, hatches and symbols. Steve will also show how it is possible to use this strip in a number of use cases, including on both Borehole Logs and Quick Section templates.
After the break, Gary will take over and show how to move the same strips and work with them within the Civils Extension. Gary will then also take you through how to customise the profile sections that the strips appear on, including showing how to customise hatch patterns and other profile properties.
In the next Small Step Webinar the team and Gary Morin will be introducing the latest features in the HoleBASE SI extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D.
The webinar will primarily concentrate on the new dynamic profile editing capability. This new functionality allows you to quickly edit the strata profiles in the profile view and update the 3D strata surfaces.
We will cover how to use the new functionality and tips to get the most from it to enable you to streamline your workflows for both production of profile views and 3D modelling.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on A Week in the Life of a Sample.
Have you ever felt frustrated or confused when trying to manage samples as they are passed from one organisation to another?
This webinar will be exploring how such confusion can arise and more importantly what active steps can be taken to minimise them.
We'll also take time to work through some of the terminology, allowing you to distinguish your sample identifiers from your specimen references. In all of this, we will follow a sample through its creation to lab testing to illustrate the practical benefits of these themes.
Revisit the key functionality of working with Location Groups to organise your data. Collecting holes into an easy to retrieve list is a helpful shortcut for reviewing a consistent list of holes. Review how this can underpin the division of your site into distinct zones with the mapping interference of HoleBASE Professional.
Gain an understanding of how similarly themed functionality might be used you'll find out about not only Location Groups but also Saved Search, Sublocations and Phases. Find out how Location Groups can also aid with routine tasks such as scheduled lab testing.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on Importing Data Solutions throughout your Supply Chain.
Throughout the history of Keynetix, ever since the company was founded and have been working with our customers through the life of their projects, common issues and themes arise when importing data.
Many of these issues can easily be resolved with improved communication throughout your supply chain. Simple issues such as defining what location types and geology definitions are going to be named can be resolved at the start of a project without the need for issues to arise just before deadline day.
Other issues such as data precision, date formats, unit definitions and custom fields can also be resolved fairly easily using the tools available.
The team will guide you through the above issues and how to bring resolutions through the best means possible.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on Recording and Maintaining Geological Classifications.
The manner in which geological material is characterised, clearly underpins the entire development of a ground model. Lynchpins of the interactive modelling process geology codes and related columns of data form an invaluable way of expressing interpretation.
In this webinar we will be considering the practical applications of geology codes for consultants and contractors as well as other columns of data which might typically be used in a similar manner.
How such picklists are setup and maintained, or how the implications for these are controlled for the purposes of output, will all be covered in this webinar. Therefore, you'll gain a sound understanding of why geology codes are important and what recording them enables you to do.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on Keynetix.cloud and Further Improvements to Data Flow Throughout Your Supply Chain.
There may be some familiarity with this subject as the team did a similar webinar recently titled Importing Data Solutions throughout your Supply Chain. However, this time the team are going to take a different approach to the same area of working, by introducing Keynetix.cloud and how this can help resolve these issues especially with the use of the Keynetix.cloud Web Portal, HoleBASE Enterprise and the upcoming notifications systems.
Many of these issues can easily be resolved with improved communication throughout your supply chain. Simple issues such as defining what location types and geology definitions are going to be named, can be resolved at the start of a project without the need for issues to arise just before deadline day.
Other issues such as data precision, date formats, unit definitions and custom fields can also be resolved fairly easily using the tools available, both the original ones and the new ones available with the cloud technologies.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on taking things back a notch and focus on an area that our support team cover a lot of ground on, with both new users and experienced users alike.
Templates are often designed and then not touched again for a long time, usually when something goes wrong or the data doesn’t appear. When picking up the design aspect again, it can be very easy to forget what that particular expression does or if a filter was applied, to not show certain data etc.
This is usually because either the template isn’t setup correctly, or the data itself isn’t compatible with the template.
This webinar is focused to try and resolve these issues by giving some simple tips to working out why data isn’t showing and where to begin looking when you have to dive back into a template, months or years since it was originally designed. We will also go through some more quick tips and tricks to help you get your data showing in the format that you want; either via text or via graphics, bar charts or plots.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, we welcome back our Civils expert, Gary Morin, to take you through the processes involved in bringing your data into AutoCAD Civils and producing quick and simple outputs aimed at both new users and experienced users alike.
This webinar is focused on showing you all of the basic steps needed to produce outputs such as Borehole plots, Geology strips, 3D Geologies, Fence Diagrams, Profiles and we may even show a little bit of interpretation through the use of editing the profiles themselves and applying this to the model.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, we are celebrating a big milestone with our 50th Small Step Webinar. In this special hour-long event, the whole Keynetix Webinar team will be brought together to show their top 50 tips across the entire Keynetix product range with a little bit of something shown from everything ranging from Template Design, Data Entry, Lab Testing, Civils Modelling and much more.
Gary Morin, Oliver Carnaby, Phil Child, Roger Chandler and Steve Evason will all come together to show 10 tips each with the following rules;
Each presenter must show 10 tips
At least 2 different pieces of software must be shown by each presenter
Each tip demonstration is a maximum of 1 minute
We will also be doing the traditional Questions at the end so that you can ask the whole webinar team any of the tricky questions that you have been saving up for the whole team to come together and answer.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on " Getting started with the excel extension ".
Even if you are an excel expert of just starting out there will be tips and advice to help you get the most out of the excel extension.
If you are looking to build reports and charts or do detailed technical analysis then the excel extension is the place to do it. With this webinar Phil, Steve and Oliver will run over the basics of setting up reports and building technical reports for analysis of your data.
You will discover the power of the excel extension for presenting data but also producing detailed analytical reports fulling data together and making connections.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will be thinking about how you can use HoleBASE before you even step out on site and collect any data.
A lot of our clients don’t think about using our software until field teams have been mobilised to collect data onsite, where they will then upload to HoleBASE, or Keynetix.cloud and then use all of the features available to them. But there are a number of things you can use our software for before anyone has even left the office.
A number of features can be used to give you an idea of how the site will look and how the ground is made up, using just the information that is available to you through other methods from either your own team or through publicly available resources.
In this webinar, the team will go through how to bring in archive data, browse through web mapping services, show archive log outputs and generally enable you to better plan your site investigation through these techniques and more. This can then inform activity in the field, either as part of a walk over or as a set of instructions issued to a field team.
In the next of our Small Steps Series Webinars, the consultancy team will focus on going Back to Basics with Monitoring installations.
In this webinar we will be taking a look at how monitoring data should be recorded on the HoleBASE system. Focusing on standpipes/piezometers/wells, we will consider the three elements which need to be considered which impact the presentation of such data on log output. We will also review options for showing well coverings and look at some limited graphical customization options for the presentation of instrumentation.
After a longer summer break than planned, the team are back with the next of our Small Steps Series of Webinars. This time the team will be introducing a new type of template functionality that we will be releasing soon; Dynamic Log Templates.
Although the demand in the geotechnical industry is starting to shift away from traditional paper -based outputs, the fact remains that the borehole log is still a fundamental part of the geotechnical investigation process.
A great many of our customers have designed numerous borehole logs including minor changes, to enable them to show different information under different conditions. To help with this need, we developed the Master Template and Strip Set functionality to enable the changing of columns ensuring that the number of borehole log designs are reduced and that only the bits that need to change between outputs are swapped in and out.
The next step in our journey to revolutionize the borehole log, is a dynamic log template. Dynamic Logs build on the idea of a master template, with different strip sets, by allowing users to define conditions on when to show different information. We will show you how to do this by setting up a dynamic log, which looks at the data in the project for that location, then shows the correct master template and the correct strip set to only show the data needed.
Dynamic logs have numerous different features, including the ability to expand and collapse columns within a strip set when there is no data available. They also build on the old combined template functionality, previously these used to split across the page at the depth a drilling change took place, Dynamic logs can force a new page to start instead and show some, or all of the data as needed from the next or previous pages.
Lastly, the development team are hard at work on the final piece of the jigsaw for a fully dynamic template â€“ the ability to show a different first page within your log compared to the rest of the pages.
With all the features mentioned above in place, the team will show you how you will be able to design more flexible templates capable of showing different information and graphics based on the underlying data.
