A system of computer programs (WAT{_}MOVE) for transferring data among data bases in the US Geological Survey National Water Information System

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report describes WAT{_}MOVE, a system of computer programs that was developed for moving National Water Information System data between US Geological Survey distributed computer databases. WAT{_}MOVE has three major sub-systems: one for retrieval, one for loading, and one for purging. The retrieval sub-system creates transaction files of retrieved data for transfer and invokes a file transfer to send the transaction files to the receiving site. The loading sub-system reads the control and transaction files retrieved from the source database and loads the data in the appropriate files. The purging sub-system deletes data from a database. Although WAT{_}MOVE was developed ... continued below

Description

This report describes WAT{_}MOVE, a system of computer programs that was developed for moving National Water Information System data between US Geological Survey distributed computer databases. WAT{_}MOVE has three major sub-systems: one for retrieval, one for loading, and one for purging. The retrieval sub-system creates transaction files of retrieved data for transfer and invokes a file transfer to send the transaction files to the receiving site. The loading sub-system reads the control and transaction files retrieved from the source database and loads the data in the appropriate files. The purging sub-system deletes data from a database. Although WAT{_}MOVE was developed for use by the Geological Survey`s Hydrologic Investigations Program of the Yucca Mountain Project Branch, the software can be beneficial to any office maintaining data in the Site File, ADAPS (Automated Data Processing System), GWSI (Ground-Water Site Inventory), and QW (Quality of Water) sub-systems of the National Water Information System. The software also can be used to move data between databases on a single network node or to modify data within a database.
