The most appropriate method of assessing ground investigation information will depend on the nature of the investigation and the character and quantity of data. There are significant advantages to collecting such data in a quantified form since computer-based databases can then be established, facilitating their rapid assessment. Methods of assessing an engineering geological database are described. Particular attention is paid to the use of stochastic models for analysis, which are applicable to data whose distribution can be described in terms of a random function.
