A watershed data management and visualization system using code-first approach

A watershed data management and visualization system using code-first approach With rapid growth of population and economic development in northwest China, water resource over-exploitation has led to severe deterioration of watershed ecosystems. In this study, we developed a hydrological information platform (called Watershed Datacenter System) for sharing, managing, analyzing and visualizing a diverse range of hydrologic data collected at watershed scale. This platform can help investigators and geotechnical experts to conduct watershed researches with the intensive data convenience. This Watershed Datacenter system (WDC) is developed with Entity Framework 6 (EF6) approach which based on Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture pattern and several other useful technologies, such as ArcGIS API and Responsive web design. Observation Database Model (ODM), hydrological model as a service, Web services and time-series analysis tools are seamlessly integrated into our WDC with the help of open source HIS (Hydrologic Information System) from the CUAHSI (Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc.). The results demonstrate that the WDC offers quite a few advantageous features for managing and analyzing of the data for watershed research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multimedia Tools and Applications Springer Journals
