ACEC Georgia Geotechnical Forum

ACEC Georgia Geotechnical Forum

Tuesday, June 13, 2023 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (EDT)


ACEC Georgia members are invited to join the second quarterly meeting for the Geotechnical Forum! 

The ACEC Georgia Geotechnical Forum was created in 2014 to bring together professionals within the Geotechnical practice area to discuss the business challenges and potential solutions that are unique to Geotechnical firms, as well as ideas about how ACEC Georgia might engage to address those concerns. The forum is co-chaired by Tom Tye with CERM and Riley O'Brien with Advanced Drainage Systems. 

For the upcoming meeting, we will be joined by guest speaker Allen Cadden, PE, D.GE, Principal with Schabel Engineering, who will share updates on DIGGS (Data Interchange for Geotechnical and GeoEnvironmental Specialists). 

Topic Description: 

Data Interchange for Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (DIGGS) was built for us. Computer technology advancement in our daily work and play life has shown us the value of ready access to data. Geotechnical data is just as important, and we now have a way to share [data] in an open format for use across the suite of applications we use every day. More than just sharing PDFs. Think about the power of easily using this data in all our analysis tools, BIM models, or long-term asset management tools. How about combining our data with all the other data out there? This presentation will provide a brief overview of what DIGGS is and is not. We will discuss some examples of what is already being done with DIGGS formatted data and ask questions about where we might go from here.
