“Thanks to Kartotrak, we have been able to bring the concept of “confidence” to our estimates of contaminated soil mass and volume”
I work as the R&D Manager at the Danish consulting firm DMR A/S, and since my Ph.D. on stochastic modelling of contaminant transport through the unsaturated zone in the late 90’ies I have kept my eyes open for opportunities to bring geostatistics to the practical field of “contaminated site assessment” for our clients.
Drastically decreased prices on chemical analyses (and generally better site characterizations), a client demand for integrated database storage of contaminant data, and my discovery of Kartotrak made my dream come true.
After purchase of our Kartotrak licence and a personal intensive two-day training course at the Geovariance office in Fontainebleau, we have been able to bring the concept of “confidence” to our estimates of contaminated soil mass and volume, and to the estimated location of the contaminated mass.
In this respect Kartotrak has unique qualities when it comes to ease of use, geostatistical power and visualization capabilities in both 2D and 3D of contaminant concentrations, statistical properties and geologic layers.
Through my initial use and familiarization with Kartotrak, I have had good success with the mentoring service and the tech support offered by Geovariances. Two thumbs up!
