The purpose of sampling and surveying in radiological environments is to generate data. Sampling and Analysis Plans focus on specifying how data will be generated, and to a lesser extent how they will be used. Less attention is typically paid to how data will be managed during fieldwork and after fieldwork is completed. The lack of a data management system and a detailed data management plan can severely impact the effectiveness of sampling and surveying efforts. For complex settings that involve multiple sampling programs across a site (or over time), integrating, managing, and preserving information garnered from each of these sampling programs may be crucial to the overall success of the characterization and remediation effort.
