TIME SERIES DATA MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (HYSDIS)
1. Purpose and objectives
To provide a comprehensive PC-based system for the acquisition,
management, analysis and presentation of hydrological or climate data.
The HYDSYS Data Management Suite provides a complete solution to environmental data management incorporating components to manage time series data, groundwater bore information and water quality data as well as providing a mapping interface and modelling tools. The HYDSYS Product Suite is aimed at organizations that need to manage large amounts of data.
HYDSYS/TS Time Series Data Management has facilities for: storing time
series data efficiently; importing data from a wide range of sources;
editing and reviewing data; analysing data; reporting on the quality of
HYDSYS/MA (Mapping add on) provides a mapping front-end to your HYDSYS archive. You can access data stored in your HYDSYS archive by clicking on a station and then selecting the data you are interested in. You can access live data, pre-computed reports or any documents associated with a station.
HYDSYS/MO (Modeling add on) is a synchronous modelling tool for performing calculations with HYDSYS data where time is allowed to advance in regular steps. For example models can be created for: water balance analyses; load calculation; I&I analysis; error propagation analysis,
HYDSYS/WQ (Water Quality add on) for managing water quality data. With a flexible database structure HYDSYS/WQ lets you store any number of analysis results with each sample. It also allows you to store any number of samples. HYDSYS/WQ is tightly integrated with HYDSYS/TS, which enables you to combine your water quality data with your quantity data.
HYDSYS/GW (Ground Water add on) for managing groundwater bore information. You can store everything you need to know about groundwater bores including construction details, casings, screens, aquifers penetrated, lithology, geology and much more. Bore production databases allow you to record water levels, pump test results, water chemistry, water usage and more.
HYDSYS/TS is the core component; MA, MO, WQ and GW are add ons to
Any data source can be interfaced to HYDSYS. Facilities are provided
to import data from ASCII files and dBaseIII+ databases. A comprehensive
chart-digitizing program uses a flat bed digitizer and graphically displays progress on the PC screen.
HYDSYS provides numerous reports and graphical outputs. Graphical outputs can be directed to a variety of screens, printers and plotters. Data can be exported in a number of file formats for further analysis.

Intel Pentium 266, 64 Mb RAM, 1Gb free disk space, 800x600, 256 colour video mode, Windows compatible mouse, CD-ROM, Internet access, Windows NT 4
6. Form of presentation
HYDSYS is delivered on a CD-ROM. The system as installed occupies over
300 Mb of disk space. The on line help is in English.
7. Operational experience
HYDSYS is used by over 100 organisations worldwide, including most of the major urban and rural water organisations within Australia, to manage
their archives of climate and water resources data. Because of its
sophisticated data compression features, HYDSYS can store archives comprising thousands of station years of continuous data on a PC hard disk. Very large archives may be managed on a LAN, with multiple workstations
accessing the data.
8. Originator and technical support
