Software designed to aggregate environmental data for compliance purposes has been available for three decades. Environmental Data Management (EDM) software has functionality to support data collection, aggregation and analysis in relation to environmental remediation, decommissioning and pre-construction permitting projects. This report provides users of environmental data management (EDM) software in consulting firms, government agencies and corporations with an overview of the market and an assessment of the capabilities of the 17 most prominent EDM software applications. The study finds that EDM software integrates with but is distinct from the larger EH&S software market. EDM software apps typically cover multiple categories of environmental data including air, water, soil, sediment, noise and biological. Core functionality spans sample planning and labelling, chain of custody and electronic data deliverable workflow, integration with data loggers and a wide range of modelling and mapping tools.
