Representing geotechnical entities on the world wide web.

Toll, D. G. and Cubitt, A. C. (2003) 'Representing geotechnical entities on the world wide web.', Advances in engineering software., 34 (11-12). pp. 729-736.


This paper describes the development of GeotechML, a mark-up language for representing geotechnical data on the web. GeotechML is a version of XML (Extensible Mark-up Language) specifically targeted at geotechnical engineering. The representation of geotechnical entities such as dams, retaining walls and foundations is presented. Stylesheets and Java applications have been developed to display the data graphically within a web browser. GeotechML will make it possible to search all geotechnical data available on the web. It is suggested that the World Wide Web will become an international repository of geotechnical information, avoiding the need to establish national or international geotechnical databases.
