25 years expert
soil survey digitalisation

TerraIndex improves and guarantees the quality of soil surveys by digitising, optimising and integrating the survey process. Together with our customers and partners, we strive for a responsible realisation of construction and infrastructure projects worldwide – without unnecessary risks.


Digitalisation of soil surveys of great importance for public health worldwide.

We believe that qualitative soil survey forms the basis for a responsible realisation of construction and infrastructure projects. Reliable results are crucial for the health of the population and a well-organised process ensures the safety of the technicians.

We are experts in soil survey and act as a committed partner and consultant for many organisations. Since 1996, TerraIndex has been helping its customers perform their important work optimally, digitise data and design and automate processes more securely. We also developed, among other things, the assessment framework in webservice for the Dutch government: BoToVa.

What started 25 years ago with a Psion MX and the first fieldwork software: BoorManager, has evolved to our current state of the art software. TerraIndex makes the entire soil survey more reliable and efficient – from fieldwork to reporting. 1300+ users use TerraIndex daily, resulting in 1 million+ lab assignments annually.

We strive for optimal customer satisfaction and continuous improvement

We are in constant contact with our customers – at the office, in the field and in the laboratory – to continuously identify obstacles and opportunities and listen to requests and ideas. This allows us to continuously develop our software and add valuable features. We aim for optimal customer satisfaction and close cooperation where we act as a partner and colleague.

As a team, we continuously evaluate what is going well and what can be improved. Within our own team, in the collaboration with our customers and in the cooperation between the different links in the industry. We continue to look for ways to make soil survey accurate and efficient, so our customers can provide their clients with reliable results faster.

TerraIndex has been a household name within the European market since 2010 and the only software in the world that offers a totally integrated solution for the entire soil survey process. Our aim is to implement TerraIndex in the international top 20 survey organisations by 2025, thus contributing to more safety and better health worldwide.
