    Hi, how can I put AGS into soil stat

    1. Yong

      AGS data is a kind of text data format. A data map file can be created to import AGS data into SoilStats. Please let me know if a new SoilStats template and a data map file are required for your projects.

    Dear Mr. Yong
    I’m trying to add xlsx data (it contains boreholes info) to a new project in SoilStats but the only way to do that is with a python file. How can i convert xlxs spreadsheet to python?
    Kind regards

    1. Yong

      Hi Gabriel, you can basically copy and paste your data into SoilStats. You don’t need Python to import your xlsx file.

    How can I import the boreholes alongwith soil layers and SPT profile into KMZ

    1. Yong

      Right now you can directly export the soil layers and other point data to kmz file. But SPT cannot be shown now.

    I was able to use past versions of SoilStats by simply adding my data map to the file and then uploading a gINT file. Now I cannot figure out where load in the data map and when I try and load in a gINT file I get errors. Are you able to assist with this problem? Will you be uploading a tutorial video for the new version?

    1. Yong

      Hi Karli, you will need a new data map file for the new version. Please let me know if you need a new one and I can create one for you.
      I will make a tutorial video or write a basic instruction to show how to use the data map files.

        Hi Yong, if the data maps I have been using for the past versions are not compatible, then it would be great if you could create one for me. However, I’m still unsure where to set the data maps in the new version.

        1. Yong

          Hi Karli, don’t worry. I will create a new data map file for you and show you how to set it up.

    Thank you so much Yong. I will try and let you know if I face any problem.
    Thanks for providing us such wonderful software.

    Can I get manual to know how to use the SoilStat?

    1. Yong

      Shaloo, I will publish a demo video in a few days.

    2. Yong

      If you open the example file in the SoilStats folder, you should be able to have good idea what it can do and how it works.

    I downloaded the soil stat but there is no excel example. How can I get it?

    1. Yong

      Hi Shaloo, now you can directly enter your data in SoilStats. Excel file format was not put in the example folder of V 0.8. Can you explain you case and the reason you need to import your data from excel files?

    Dear Mr. Yong,

    I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request your assistance with exporting data from the SPT Estimate dialog. I have attempted to copy and paste the data into Excel or a text file, but so far have been unsuccessful.

    Would you be able to provide me with guidance on the proper method for exporting this data? I would greatly appreciate any advice or instructions you could offer.

    Thank you very much in advance for your time and help.

    Best regards,


    1. Yong

      Sorry Santiago, you cannot copy or export the data from the dialog with current version. I will make it available in the next version.

    Dear Mr. Yong,
    I have borehole values in PDF format, I have summarized them according to depth in excel and also tabulated SPT N values. I was wondering how can I input this information manually?

    1. Yong

      Hi Abdi, you can take a look the file Soilstats/examples/xlsx data.xlsx and see if you can use the this xlsx file template. By the way, a new version of SoilStats is coming out soon, which will provide the functions for borehole logs, stats, 3D view, and provide more flexibility.

        Thank You, Mr. Yong. When I import the sample xlsx file, it says, invalid data map file. please check if a correct data map file was used. This is what I did, open a new file then open then file then xlsx then sample xlsx then I got the error above.

        1. Yong

          Hi Abdi, you need to set the datamap file for different file format. To set datamap file for the default xlsx file format, please go through the menu Settings->Data Map File->Add/Update->SoilStats examples folder->datamap_soilstats_xlsx_0_2.sdm.

    Hi Yong – SoilStats is giving me an error saying the data file map is not correct. I’m using the one in your example folder, do you have any suggestions?

    1. Yong

      Hi Graeme, the data map file should match the data file you used. What data file did you use?

    1. Yong
