gINT DIGGS Compliance
As part of the submission requirements listed in Section 701 of the ODOT Specifications for Geotechnical Explorations, final boring data is to be submitted in an electronic format that is compliant with the Data Interchange for Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (DIGGS) standard. Please note that gINT project files developed using ODOT’s gINT library are an acceptable format as they can be successfully converted to DIGGS format by ODOT. Additional information on DIGGS can be found at https://www.geoinstitute.org/special-projects/diggs.
gINT Download Files
The ODOT gINT Library, Data Template, and Example Project files are available below. gINT version 10.00.00.69 or greater is required to use these files.
- The OH DOT.glb Library File contains data for calculations, data entry lists, and reports.
- The OH DOT.gdt Template File contains the data base structure for cloning into new Project database files.
- Example.gpj is an Example Project database file, filled out with an example of typical data.
- Make a new Project database file, [name].gpj, for each project, and use a unique project identifier for [name].
These files are regularly updated. When this occurs, we will send out notifications to the gINT email Subscription List. If you wish to subscribe or unsubscribe to/from the list, please email the list manager, Alexander Dettloff.
For those who do not have gINT version 10.00.00.69, or do not wish to use the ODOT gINT Library and Template, we are making available the Official ODOT Symbols and Tiles for use in gINT Reports. These can be incorporated into any gINT Library. The files under gINT Material Symbols (below) provide examples and definitions of the ODOT gINT Material Symbols. The following CSV (Comma Separated Values) and DXF (Autodesk Drawing Exchange Format) files contain the exported ODOT gINT Tile definitions for use in constructing the Material Symbols.
We now have a gINT Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page available, HERE.
