Database Entry Tools

EcoCat
EcoCat is a two tiered system that is browser based, built with JAVA and stores data to an Oracle database. The first tier allows staff and contractors to use the government's intranet to upload reports, datasets and maps into the catalogue and store the information in Oracle. The second tier produces a searchable browser based catalogue on the Internet site that the public may use to discover information and download their own copies of the reports, datasets and maps

FDIS (Field Data Information System)

It is a two part system where the first part is an MS Access tool to allow contractors and staff to enter, verify and edit data. The second part is the Oracle based components where all the data is eventually loaded. The Oracle components provide for data storage, some data editing, summary of the data to other systems (FISS), integration and access to the data for other systems and data reporting.
