      Although database technology has been used in the field of Geotechnical Engineering for many years, but a unique format for storing and managing Rock Mechanics data is still not available. Considering the vast amount of information gained through large number of previous and ongoing site investigations for various projects such as tunnels, dams, and infrastructure projects in
Iran, shows the importance of developing a consistent system to store and manage the obtained data. This paper presents and discusses a method for developing a database for Rock Mechanics data following the rules of the AGS Format.
