GIS/Key is a custom-developed software system for the management of site-specific chemical, geologic, and hydrologic data. This software system, which is being used at a number of hazardous waste and Superfund sites, was selected for SITE testing to assess whether it truly facilitates the collection, reporting, and analysis of large volumes of site-specific environmental data. During the SITE evaluation, operators used GIS/Key to assess the production of a variety of contour maps, tabular chemistry reports, geology tables, hydrogeologic tables, geologic logs, and chemistry and hydrogeology graphs. The systems's user-friendly design, compatibility with 386 and 486 personal computers using Disk Operating System (DOS), one-time data entry requirements, and built-in data quality checks contributed to the positive assessment of the software's performance.
