SuperLog generates boring log and test pit graphical reports for field drilling and geotechnical investigations. It is a user-friendly, easy to learn, powerful, and flexible program, which will increase your productivity significantly.

Advanced capabilities include rapid input, e.g., typing "f to m sa" will pop out "fine to medium sand." The abbreviation list can be personalized by the user. Automatic depth generation, and boilerplate make the input fast and enjoyable. The average time to learn the program is 15 minutes. The average time to generate a log is 5 minutes. All the symbols and soil patterns can be viewed and input on the screen so that you do not have to remember them.

SuperLog saves countless engineer's hours spent preparing and retrieving boring logs. This benefit can begin immediately since the program is extremely easy to learn and use. With a laptop computer you can even enter in the data during the actual drilling.

The logs can be pasted into MS-Word, so you can include all boring logs in your geotechnical report and e-mail them to your clients. You can also put several logs on one page. (See Examples in Word) The logs can be imported into AutoCAD or other drawing programs and can be further edited.

SuperLog also provides a royalty-free preview and print utility so users can send the logs electronically to their clients via e-mail, allowing the clients to view and print the logs. Current version is Verson 3. (For the difference between version 2 and 3, see Q&A below)

Free Templates in Program (Click here to view and download PDF file)

The program includes 28 free templates (English units only). Users can select from these templates.

Note: CivilTech does not provide customer template-design. Users should utilize the existing 28 templates (English units only) and only change company logo, and name. CiivlTech does not provide technical supports for users designed or modified templates.
