gINT

gINT software by Bentley is used to manage, report, and database geotechnical information. The gINT Library and Data template have been customized for PennDOT Projects and are available by joining the gINT Subscription List. A Strike-Off Letter was issued, link below, detailing how gINT software is to be incorporated into the project development process. If you have any questions regarding the use of gINT software for PennDOT projects, please contact us at gINTSupport@pa.gov.

PennDOT is using gINT Professional Plus Version 8i Enterprise edition. PennDOT Business Partners responsible for geotechnical constituents of the project development process will need to purchase gINT Professional V8i to prepare gINT Project files and to produce standardized geotechnical documents for placement in PennDOT reports and on PennDOT plans.
