The Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists Data Interchange Format (commonly known as the AGS specification) is a set of rules for the electronic transfer of subsurface investigation data. It was developed in the United Kingdom in 1991 and has been adopted in a number of countries. More information about this format can be found on the AGS Web site ( gINT fully supports versions 3 and 3.1 of the specification.

The files available for download below contain the necessary support files and extensive documentation on their use. In addition, we have included 20 report-quality forms that work with the AGS data structures. These reports include logs, a fence diagram, graphs, a histogram, a graphic table, a text table, a graphic text document, and a text document.

Besides the files downloaded here, you will also need gINT version 8 or later.

While we have worked to ensure the templates are current and produce correct results, we make no warranty of suitability or correctness. These files are provided at no charge and they are to be taken as is. You are free to modify these files. Please report any problems with the files in the Geotechnical Forum.
