The EIS2008 Report and Trends Facility is the main user
component of RKM Engineering's EIS for Windows2000/XP and Office2000-2007 Environmental Information
System (EIS2008). It enables the EIS2008 server or networked workstation user to
generate many types of reports in numerical and graphical format over the EIS2008
database, including monthly matrices, charts of up to 16 items combining block
and moving averages, wind roses, calibration results and others.
The Report Facility enables the EIS2008 user to produce many kinds of reports,
both in numerical and graphical or trend modes. The parameters to be reported on
as well as the time and date range are easily set up. Block and/or running
averages can be selected as well, for some types of reports even combinations of
average intervals may be used. An Actions group determines the destination of
the report, while the Options group allows for selection of numerical or
graphical modes, as well as real-time operation for some reports. Graphical
reports can be scrolled and zoomed. Numerical reports can be printed, or
exported to comma-delimited text, MS-Word, or MS-Excel files.
A report setup can be saved as a profile, to save mouse clicks the next time
a similar report is to be generated. Reports can be produced for single
parameters, for all parameters at a station, or for a filtered group of
Report organizes hourly data (block or running averages) one month at
a time, one day per line, with daily averages, minimums and maximums, as
well as total averages and peaks. At the same time, this report is a
performance report, as it lists the total percentage of available data,
and detailed listings of reasons for each type of invalid or flagged data.
The graphical version shows a vertical line for each day of the month.
This line is drawn from the minimum daily value to the maximum daily
value. A horizontal line segment crosses this line at the daily average
||The numerical Browser
lists data for selected channels and for the selected average interval and
period, in a matrix grid format. It can be saved as a comma-delimited text
file. In graphical form, it produces trends for up to sixteen series, for
single or for a combination of two average intervals, eg. 1-minute and
hourly, or hourly and 24-hourly running averages. The graphical version is
Report is only available in numerical format. It sequentially lists
data for each selected or filtered channel, with a maximum of 24 readings
per line. It is available for block as well as running averages, but only
for a single average type per report. When all points for a channel have
been listed, the minimum, maximum and average values for the report period
are shown as well. The Summary Report is a special version of this
report, in that only the min, max and report period averages are listed.
This is a powerful report to display quarterly or annual averages, as an
||The Current Data
Report is in essence a pivoted version of the Multi-Parameter Report.
It groups the parameters by station, listing one time point per line, for
as many channels as are selected or filtered for the station. No max, min
or report period averages are produced.
Results Report lists all stored calibration results for the selected
channels for the report period. When produced in graphical form, the six
pertinent values (zero reading, noise and error, span reading, noise and
error) are plotted for the channel shown in the form header only.
||The Alarm Report
lists all stored Alarm, Exceptions and QA/QC flagged data for the selected
channels for the report period. This is basically a report version of the
Alarm History Log.
Distribution Report lists the number of readings which fall in various
ranges, as set up by the Parameter Type Configuration. It is available in
graphical bar chart form as well.
Distribution Report shows the percentages of hourly readings during
which the selected parameter was in a certain range (eg. 2-3 pphm) while the
associated hourly wind direction was at one of 16 compass points. This
report is of value for users who have a need to correlate ambient pollutant
readings with particular pollution sources. In graphical form, the data is
plotted on a polar grid, resulting in a pollution rose or wind rose.
||The NAPS Report
is designed to transfer data in NAPS Hourly Record Update Format to other
agencies. It applies to hourly averages only, and is only available in
||The Data Audit Log
Report includes a listing of all edits, with before and after values and
other pertinent information, for the selected parameters and report period,
organized by Edit Session.
||Similarly, the Configuration
Audit Log Report lists all changes made to Configuration Files over the
report period, organized by configuration type.
