Meet us at Pollutec ! From October 10th to 13th, we will be at Pollutec showcasing our latest developments and features. Curious if TerraIndex can make a difference for you? Book a non-committal meeting with us at Pollutec ! We will take the time to answer all your questions, provide live demos, and let you...

We have released several new updates. Here are the key points: New features:
  • The selection screen for drilling profiles and reports has been enlarged.
  • Several new fields have been added. Check the release notes to see which fields you want to add to your templates!
  • Validation in the lab order now only occurs during submission and not when saving. This allows you to prepare a lab order without facing multiple warnings.
  • A button has been added in the table view to display the map.
  • When creating a lab order, all analysis samples that haven't been sent yet are listed under 'new analysis samples'. (a request from our Expert Group)
Furthermore, we've implemented improvements to make it easier for our support team to assist you even faster: Support Features:
  • It's now possible to directly import field files into the web interface (previously required conversion).
  • Logging has been enhanced to reduce unnecessary information and facilitate finding the right notifications.
We hope these new features are valuable to you! Another update will be shared in two weeks. This news message and all previous news messages can be found on our wiki!

We start Q3 with another full release message. Over the past month, we have been working hard on Streamline, and we are getting close to a version that can be tested with users. For web and the current app, we have released the following items in the past weeks:
  1. It is now possible to draw a measuring point in relation to a fixed point in the app. This means you can select a fixed point on the map and then measure your point in relation to that point, capturing the displacement from that point. The fixed point is saved among different measuring points, so you can reuse the same point to measure multiple points. At the bottom of the message, there is a screenshot showing how this function looks and works in the app.
  2. Update to the DOV export. Now, the precision codes of X, Y, and Z coordinates are also added if they have been filled in Terraindex.
  3. You can now zoom in and drag the borehole preview on the screen.
  • The export of TEQ substances was not correct under specific circumstances. This has been resolved.
  • The progress calculation of certain reports could exceed 100%, which sometimes prevented the report from being downloaded. This is now fixed.

Message specifically for TerraIndex Application Managers: As of August 1, old TerraIndex login accounts will no longer work. This has not been possible in TerraIndex Web since November, but it was still possible on the tablet App. From August 1, this will no longer be possible! If you continue working with an old account after August 1, there is a risk of data loss. Click on Read more to see how you can check whether this is also happening within your company and whether you still need to take action. Thank you in advance for cooperation!

This week we have been working on the Borelogs, DOV Export, and Sub-locations in the app. Borelogs:

  • The problem of multiple commas appearing in the BZBs and missing commas in the soil type text has been fixed.
  • The bug that only the BOPB of the first monitoring well was displayed when this label was used has been fixed.
  • Two measurement point labels have been added to the borehole profile settings:
    • Ambient air temperature
    • Weather conditions
DOV Export:
  • The Informal stratigraphy element is no longer created empty if a lithographic stratigraphy can be created.
  • The altitude is now rounded to 2 decimal places.
Next steps for DOV include supporting altitude and coordinate precision as a field in TerraIndex and including them in the export. Sub-locations in the app: It has been possible to fill in Sub-locations in TerraIndex web for some time now, but recently this can also be done in the app. Starting from version 1.49.0. For now, this is only available in the Windows app. The iOS app will follow. For more news messages, visit our wiki!

We have been working hard this week to ensure that the technology behind TerraIndex stays well-maintained and up to date. Technical improvements:

  • We have written a large number of automated tests for the web environment of TerraIndex to make maintenance easier.
  • We have started updating our server software to a newer version.
  • Some improvements have been made to the reporting tool.
In addition, we have implemented some minor developments:
  • The borehole profile images that can be displayed on the web are now of higher quality.
  • For Belgium, the DOV export has been improved with the following features:
    • Informal stratigraphy is no longer always exported; it is only provided when no lithographic description can be made.
    • The altitude value is now rounded to two decimals.
  • The 'new layer description' feature in the borehole profile has been further improved based on user feedback for Spanish, French, and Italian.
  • A new assessment is available for Belgium: Vlarem II Annex 2.3.1 for Water Sediment.
Visit our wiki for more feature updates!

These are the new features of week 16:

  • In the SIKB 14.4 export, the drawn project contours and sublocation contours are now included, just like in the previously implemented 14.7 export. This means that you can now easily provide a contour via a SIKB 14 export.
  • Great news for AL-West customers, it is now possible to download the lab certificate from AL-West through Terraindex. You can do this by clicking on the lab order and pressing the 'download certificate' button on the top left.
More weekly updates are available on our wiki!


This week a lot of effort was spent on the upcoming app, Terraindex streamline. Although we won't highlight the features that have been made for that application we do have a little sneak peak for you down below. Other items that were finished this week: New features:

  • The backend calls on Terraindex web have been overhauled, which improves performance
  • The project contours that are drawn on the map can now be exported in SIKB 14.7 exports
  • Sneak peek: The new look of the Terraindex android app. See the expanded explanations for more details
For a complete list AND a sneak peak of the new app, take a look on our wiki!

This week we released several new features! Features:

  • The new fields for this quarter have been added. Be sure to check to release notes to see which fields were added and, if you want to use them, ask your application manager to make them visible in the template management.
  • In addition to the new fields, we have also added a short description of all fields in the template management section. This tells you how a field can be used and in what unit, etcetera. We would love to hear feedback from users on this feature.
  • A feature was added to change the borelog descriptions for soil texture, colour and special components. Instead of the ‘robotic’ summation in the borelogs, it is now possible to turn on this feature to get a more natural sentence. A more detailed explanation of this feature will be given below.
  • It is now possible to draw a project contour which defines the extent of your research area.
We have also fixed some bugs in existing functionality. For the complete page with all release notes, visit our wiki!
