STORET logo STORET version 2.0.1 Database Views

STORET User Assistance is pleased to release scripts for the creation of STORET version 2.0.1 Database "views" representing key concepts associated with the business of water quality monitoring. A database view is a preformatted SQL instruction which defines a concept by relating it to many fields in the database, drawn from many different database tables. These views define Stations, Station Visits, Monitoring Activities, and Results. Within these views, internal codes and references are translated into their plain English values, and data like latitude and longitude are converted to proper forms which may be easily interpreted by your analytical software.

Through the capabilities of Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), these views make your STORET data appear as formatted tables or worksheets in ODBC compliant spread-sheets, databases, or analytical software. Examples include MS Access®, MS Excel®, Lotus 123®, ESRI ArcView®, and SAS®.
