Additional ESdat Server Options
ESdat Data Services
ESdat Data Service provides an interface for the exchange of data between ESdat and other systems.
A Webservice interface exposes ESdat data related to Chemistry Results, Groundwater Depths, and Logger Data for using in other software systems. It also supports automated upload of Logger and other data via a webservice, FTP or Email. Read more about logger data in ESdat.
ESdat Public Portal
The ESdat Public Portal is able to provide monitoring data in a simple to understand format for
external or public consumption, with or without protection by a user name and password.
Reports can be integrated with Bing Maps as a backdrop, and allow interaction
between clicking on a point and the data displayed on the report (ie click on a
point and see all data related to that point)
One example implementation of the ESdat Public Portal is the Shoalhaven City
Council "Aquadata" website. See the
Aquadata Press Release for more information and for a link to Aquadata
ESdat Server Web Interface has the ability to output data in custom formats.
An extract from a report is below. A report can consist of multiple tables, graphs and blocks of text, and users can export to Word or PDF and insert an interprative section when required. Another example report, produced in ESdat and exported to MS Word is available here (will download a doc in word format) .
ESdat WFS (Web Feature Services)
The ESdat WFS Service exposes ESdat data in the Open Geoscience Consortium (OGC) Web Feature Service (WFS) format.
The ESdat WFS Service provides the following ESdat data types as WFS layers:
- Chemistry Samples and Results
- Water Depths
ESdat Change Tracker
Tracks all edits and deletions made to the ESdat database, along with the User, Date/Time, Old Value.
