Abstract: The roll-out of Data Interchange for Geotechnical and GeoEnvironmental Specialists (DIGGS) has started, and the Ohio DOT (ODOT) has already announced that it will be required beginning January 2018. This article is the first of several to introduce and apprise practitioners to the DIGGS Standard and to show how it can (and should) be incorporated into routine practice. DIGGS is the standardized data transfer protocol for the geotechnical and geoenvironmental data that is most commonly used by the profession.
