First of all we would like to thank you all for participating in our online survey (16 June – 17 July 2016) regarding Geotechpedia’s future. As we truly value your opinion we made the first step forward for more interaction between us.

Survey Results

We managed to spread the news about Geotechpedia (34% of responses were from people visiting Geotechpedia for the first time) and at the same time we validated the fact that the majority of our users visit us on a need basis. This is logical since Geotechpedia is not a social website but a technical one and, frankly speaking, this is how we want to keep it! We are here to assist you with your queries when it comes down to geotechnical and mining engineering.

1 How oftenFurther to that, the survey results proved that publications, software and latest news sections are the most popular ones. Knowledge dissemination is our core value and we will keep striving our forces to provide you with the latest achievements in our industry.

In terms of our site content we are happy to see that, as it stands at the moment, is covering most of the information our users are looking for (3.5/5) and considered to be of the highest quality (3.7/5) compared to other sites of similar content (3.7/5). However, that doesn’t mean that we are going to sit back and relax. We will keep on trying to provide you with the most recent and useful information in the industry.

Participants feedback

Finally, almost half of the participants (45%) reverted back to us with some really interesting and helpful comments.

The main request refers to more technical discussion. We have to admit that during the last few months our blog wasn’t as active as we would like it to be. For that reason, we have decided to inaugurate a new feature called “Geosysta short courses”. The new feature has been already released and its main purpose is to provide you with more technical information on engineering issues (case studies will be also included) and improve the technical connection between our users and ourselves.

Further to that and based on your comments, we will try to improve the appearance of our website (our web designers have already started their brainstorming!).

Another interesting remark was regarding the absence of a monthly newsletter which will inform you for the latest additions in our website. We are happy to say that having predicted that we just recently released our monthly newsletter (http://eepurl.com/b8N02X).

Finally, we received several requests for creating a geotechnical/mining conferences, symposiums, webinars agenda. We have to admit that this kind of information would be really useful and we will try updating Geotechpedia accordingly the soonest possible.

Thank you all once more and please do not hesitate to contact us directly at contact@geotechpedia.com.
