WATER QUALITY DATABASE (HYQUAL)
1. Purpose and objectives
To assist in managing the storage and analysis of water quality data. For use wherever storage of sample data of water for ingestion, hygiene, agricultural, industrial or recreational purposes is required.
HYQUAL is a water quality database running under Microsoft Windows
using standard Windows user-interface methods. It can be used to organize
and present water quality data in a manner that is easily assimilated by
non-technical managers. The database provides a stimulus for collecting
HYQUAL data are stored in a hierarchical manner allowing sample
points to be grouped into clusters that may be defined by any convenient
method; for example, by using descriptions of geographical features such
as river reaches, sewage treatment works or reservoirs. Groups of clusters
HYQUAL graphs include time series, scatter plots, bar graphs and
multi-site plots. The Windows environment permits several tables and
graphs to be displayed simultaneously, so that comparison of data for
different sites or time periods can be made quickly and easily.
Data are entered and edited through standard Windows text entry
boxes. Data can be imported in ASCII format to allow data exchange with
HYQUAL output can be sent to any device supported by the Windows
environment. Tables and graphs can be cut and pasted into other Windows
programs via the clipboard. Data can be exported in ASCII format to allow
data exchange with other software.
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
HYQUAL runs under Microsoft Windows version 3.0 or 3.1.
6. Form of presentation
One 3.5" disc with executable programs and a manual.
7. Operational experience
The data base has already been used with success in tropical areas
(Papua New Guinea) as well as in Europe.
8. Originator and technical support
Software Sales & Support Section, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology,
formerly the Institute of Hydrology, Wallingford.
10. Conditions on use
