This project has contributed to the efficiency and effectiveness with which soil information is organized and studied in Venice, Italy by computerizing soil core sample data collected by several geotechnical companies. A database was designed to store the data in such a way as to allow the soil information to be readily accessible. After this computerization was complete, a map of all soil test locations was developed, in which the pertinent information for each test can be instantly shown by simply selecting the location at which that test was performed.
