Tribal water quality database training

NWIFC’s SSHIAP/Water quality GIS analyst Ron McFarlane is giving a lecture to introduce a standardized database to assist tribes in transferring existing water quality data into a common format.

Some of the key features are:

  • The database resides at the tribe (not at the commission).
  • The structure is the same at each tribe, which is more cost-effective for the creation of tools and tech support.
  • Users are able to enter data, import data, validate key fields and load data from other sources (such as EPA).
  • Users can export data in XML format to EPA.
  • Database is updateable.
