WQData LIVE Web Datacenter
Collect, store and share environmental data with the industry's most advanced web datacenter.
Web-enabled data loggers automatically connect and stream data to WQData LIVE. Data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed from any PC or mobile device. Two-way communication allows the user to quickly configure settings or troubleshoot communications from anywhere.
Customize and share
Setup one or multiple dashboards, or customize default dashboards to optimize data display. Cycle dashboards automatically or setup a single long-format scrollable display.
Arrange panels for custom display
Dashboards are easily customized to suit project needs. Select the edit icon (pencil), drag and drop panels and position as desired. You can also select from a wide variety of standard panels including map, site/device list, live video, project photo, graphs, single parameter data display, project description, data disclaimer, alarms and more…
View projects on interactive maps
ESRI Leaflet maps are displayed with markers accurately locating project sites and when clicked, parameter data and photos are available directly on maps. Alarm conditions illuminate the site object and highlight ‘alike’ parameter readings across the entire project.
View trends on interactive graph
Single and multi-traces graphs are interactive. Select the parameters to be graphed on the site list or map. Select day, month, week, or year. Zoom to specific events and reset for a full-time period.
Monitor and control alarms
The system monitors alarm conditions on parameter readings at a single site or across multiple sites in a project. Automatic and manual resets provide convenient control. Actions include email notification or smartphone push notifications when using the available app.
Create graphical, statistical and data reports
Pre-built report templates create new multi-site, multi-parameter reports. Charts, statistics, data tables, field notes and more are presented in easy to understand reports that are easy to share. Post to an FTP site, email, create PDF files and download to spreadsheets.
Encourage team collaboration
WQData LIVE is set up to promote collaboration without risk of data loss or accidental system configuration changes. The project administrator invites collaborators and assigns privileges. Collaborators have access to most of the functionality including dashboard, reports, media gallery, alerts, and more.
Store and share visuals in the Media Gallery
Upload project or site photos to the cloud for display in the media gallery. Connect an environmental web camera to the NexSens X2 data logger for photo and video upload in sync with parameter readings.
Share with the larger group of stakeholders
WQData LIVE’s public portal makes data available for open web publishing. Interested viewers only see data that you select. An independent URL can be setup for projects. The slide show feature shares a project overview, maps, photos, data, plots and more. Viewers can enable parameter notifications pushed to a mobile device when parameter limits are exceeded.
No need for a site visit to make configuration changes. Queue the commands online and the remote data logger will be configured on the next transmission connection.
Two solitary data buoys floating off the storm-tossed Lake Superior shore near Munising and Granite Island were sudden stars in 2017. That October, they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes—each 28.8-foot high—during a storm that claimed the lives of two people swept off rocks. This attention-getting event shows how buoy data help managers and the public comprehend the otherwise unimaginable force of a wild Lake Superior […]Read More →
Beginning in the 1990s, researchers have collected samples manually every few weeks on trips to Lake Champlain to gather data on its dynamics. But the metrics the team has collected are spotty, considering the faster-paced changes fueled by a changing climate. To help fill in those holes, researchers from the State University of New York (SUNY)—Plattsburgh deployed a cellular data buoy in the lake near Valcour Island. The buoy is […]Read More →
For more than 100 years, the Stannard Rock Lighthouse has kept a watchful guard over Lake Superior. But now, a new weather buoy is joining the watch in a remote part of Lake Superior, providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service (NWS), and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES), and the University of Colorado-Boulder deployed the buoy on the lake […]Read More →
