SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., 9 August 2005 — Locus Technologies (Locus), a leader in environmental information management, today announced that it has expanded its award winning, web-based Environmental Information Management™ (EIM™) system, a part of their LocusFocusSM web portal, to integrate dynamic charting for .NET.

EIM has always supported charts for analytical results and groundwater readings. With dynamic charting, EIM users gain a rich set of features for charting, analyzing, and visualizing their environmental data. EIM’s dynamic charting provides end-user chart customization through intuitive menus, dialogs, and toolbars harnessing the power of .NET. Users can easily change chart colors and styles, customize the axes and legends, and display the chart in 3D. Users can also switch between a gallery of chart types on the fly. Users can store a particular chart for future use, maximizing the usability and readability of EIM’s charts and greatly streamlining data reporting. Users can export the charts to a variety of formats, including bitmaps, metafiles, and text files.

EIM’s new dynamic charting is fully integrated with EIM, allowing users to view charts on their desktop in an Internet browser. EIM users can create graphs showing parameter results, field measurements, and groundwater levels. Users can also make graphs of various statistical quantities, such as mean, median, standard deviations, and 95% confidence intervals for their data. Users can access the charting tool from within the EIM main
database, as well as from EIM’s eSVG module, which displays site maps in Scaleable Vector Graphic format.

“EIM’s new charting functionality brings powerful new capabilities to EIM. The combination of these tools, together with EIM’s other download and data visualization options, will provide environmental professionals with all the querying and reporting power they need to perform their work in an efficient and cost-effective manner,” says Dr. Neno Duplancic, president and CEO of Locus. “By integrating dynamic charting capability with EIM, Locus intends to stay at the forefront of web-based display of environmental information,” adds Dr. Duplancic.
