The focus will be on the data itself, not its implementation in software.
The course will cover fundamentals such as the data structure and encoding rules, before going on to look at some of the common problems that can arise and strategies that can be adopted to avoid them.
The course will be presented by Neil Chadwick, a geotechnical engineer with special expertise in data management and the application of digital technologies in ground engineering. He recently founded Digital Geotechnical Ltd to focus on this special interest.Neil has over 30 years of industry experience including many years at Arup working on major projects in the building and infrastructure sectors, such as Crossrail, Westfield Stratford City and the London 2012 Athletes Village. He has seen and worked with a lot of AGS data during his career!
Neil is a member of the AGS Data Management Working Group, who maintain the AGS format. He is also the lead author of AGSi, a new format for the transfer of ground model and interpreted data.
