SoilVision Professional provides database functionality with the benefit of laboratory data on over 6000 soils. The database is designed to provide a central data warehouse for soils data and allow data to be presented in multiple formats including borehole logs, GIS, finite element models, and (ASTM) laboratory test reports. SoilVision automates the entire process from the laboratory to the final reports. Automatic classification of your soil, automatic calculation of standard variables, mathematical representation of sieve analysis data and professional laboratory report generation is provided.

The knowledge-based component can provide input for analysis of unsaturated soils. SoilVision provides over 20 journal published algorithms for the estimation of soil properties required for unsaturated seepage modeling. A soils database including laboratory data on over 6000 soils is also included. 98% of these soil samples have a soil-water characteristic curve measured in a laboratory. The soil database also contains saturated permeability (hydraulic conductivity) data on 2500 soils as well as unsaturated permeability data on 700 soils. SoilVision can assist the modeler in estimating suitable input for the modeling of unsaturated soil processes independent of extensive laboratory testing programs.
