ESdat Locations Portal
The ESdat Locations Portal is a new and innovative tool for managing and searching Locations. It is included for all ESdat users that have the ESdat Server Components.
ESdat now has the ability to show all your Locations, across multiple sites and co-ordinate systems, on a Tablet or a Phone. ESdat can also calculate how far away they are!
Click on each location to see associated details, photographs and documents. A great way to help find a sampling location if you're not sure where it is, exactly!
Search to see if a Location has already been defined in the system at a new Sampling Point. Merge two Locations into one if a new point was created accidentally.
Soon to come:
1) A tab showing all previous field results for the location
2) A tab for custom reports (ie baseline reports, well construction details)
3) A link to view a complete Chem Table of all results and exceedances for that Location, presented in the ESdat Web Interface. (just like the Excel Chem Tables in ESdat Desktop, but better!)
4) QR Code scanning. This will allow users to scan a QR code at the Sampling Point, view all the location details referred to above, and immediately start entering field results.
Further to the above, integration with the Public Portal is envisaged, whereby if your organization has some public communication requirement, a member of the public can scan the QR Code, and bring up some publicly accessible information about that Location, such as recent monitoring results, a swimming recommendation, or a notification of some upcoming event.
