Title: Hydrometric asset database design specification : draft copy
Author: S.B. Clarke
Document Type: Monograph
Environment Agency Welsh region had for several years held information relating to Water Resources fixed and mobile assets on a Dataease database. The database is used both by area and regional staff and is used for SLA and gauging stations classification however some drawbacks to the system include being PC based, limited accessibility, maintenance and software support. During 1996 it was decided to migrate the database to a networked, windows platform/database which would allow multi-user and multi-site access. This would increase data accessibility, use of the system, improve asset management particularly with the potential to be linked to a mapping tool. The purpose of this specification is to detail the requirement for a Microsoft Windows based database application for the Welsh region of the Environment Agency to replace the existing database currently running under DOS and Dataease.
