SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 24, 2006 — Locus Technologies, the industry leader in environmental data management, and RockWare, Inc., a developer and reseller of environmental, geotechnical, civil engineering, and GIS software, announced today that Locus’s EIM environmental database has added exports to RockWare’s Rockworks software, used by environmental professionals worldwide. Locus’s EIM environmental data management system is the world largest online environmental database system used by some of America’s largest corporations at thousands of environmental remediation sites worldwide.
This new feature reinforces Locus’s philosophy of making environmental data management simple and streamlined, so customers realize the greatest benefits and cost savings from managing their mission-critical environmental information. The Rockworks exports join EIM’s other import/export features, including support for EPA’s Staged Environmental Data Deliverable (SEDD), ESRI Arcview, AutoCad, California’s Geotracker EDF, New Jersey’s HAZSITE, and EPA’s Region 2 and 5 formats.
Locus’s President and CEO, Dr. Neno Duplancic, said, “Our philosophy behind environmental data management is simple – create the most robust online environmental database management system in the world and provide the users with the tools and features they want and need to gain value and efficiency in the complex task of managing the huge heterogonous volumes of environmental data that are so critical to environmental site closure. By consolidating data in a single location, with the benefits of customer ownership, data consistency and user access, we solve 99% of the issues associated with environmental data management. By providing links to ancillary specialty environmental software applications, we capture the additional 1%. Users can keep familiar processes and tools, while the customer rests assured that their data resides in a single location, thus reducing costs and risks over the lifetime of the project.”
