SamplingFX is a geostatistics-based software product designed to provide decision makers and analysts a means of evaluating environmental information relative to the nature and extent of contamination in surface and subsurface soils. SamplingFX quantifies uncertainties and provides additional sample location recommendations, In the demonstration, DecisionFX used SamplingFX to import data on contaminant concentrations and surface structures from ASCII text files and bitmap graphical image files. SamplingFX demonstrated the ability to integrate this information on a single platform and place the information in a visual context. SamplingFX generated two-dimensional (2-D) maps of concentration contours, maps showing the probability of exceeding threshold concentrations, and variance maps that support data interpretation. SamplingFX was used in the demonstration to generate the data necessary for producing cost-benefit curves and estimates of concentrations at receptor locations for use in human health risk analysis. The cost-benefit curves and risk analysis were produced in an auxiliary software package (Microsoft Excel).
