Our Automated Data Collection Work


Our lives are constantly generating data, from the websites we visit to the foods we buy at the grocery store. Environmental data is no different: monitoring programs are gathering chemical and nutrient concentrations in soil and water, terrestrial stations are recording local stream and weather patterns, and satellites are capturing weather data on a larger scale. When gathering data for a project, we want to gather as much relevant data as possible, as larger datasets lead to statistical analyses with higher confidence and greater significance. This necessitates gathering data from multiple sources, which can be time-consuming and introduces complications when trying to integrate data in different formats.

Waterborne’s experts have developed an automated system to gather and process data from commonly used sources. These automated methods gather data and compile them into a multisource database with a common format. Further procedures standardize values such as precipitation, sample concentration units, and sample reporting levels. The data are then checked for duplicate entries and corrections are made. Automating these tasks allows us to efficiently provide data insights to our clients. Processed data are provided via an intuitive web interface with spatial capabilities, statistical summaries, and graphics to aid in understanding the data.
