Data

  • Northeast Regional Data, Watersheds (NW) 06/26/2019:
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Appended studies:
    NYSDEC Fish, 2017 (DE23:66)
    GE Fish Tissue data, 2016 Re-analysis (2400:Wg)
    GE Fish Tissue data, 2017 (2400:Wf)

    Other changes:
    Results from SiteID/StudyID = 2200/Tc (Newark Bay Ph3 Fish 2014-16), 2200/Td (Newark Bay Ph3 Crab/Clam 2014), and 2200/Te (Newark Bay Ph3 Sed. Quality Triad 2015) previously appended as Dataset 023 were found to overlap previously appended data for SiteID/StudyID = 2200/T2 (Newark Bay Toxicity and Bioaccumulation Sept 2015) and 2200/T3 (Newark Bay Sediment Chemistry 2014). A comparison was completed and data that were matched for concentration were removed. Data from 2200/Tc, 2200/Td, and 2200/Te that were significantly different were moved into the 2200/T2 and 2200/T3 data sets and identified with labrep codes of A1 and A2. Some data from SiteID/StudyID = 2200/Tc and 2200/Td were new (not matched to the earlier appended data in 2200/T2 and 2200/T3) and these were retained as previously appended. After the changes, there were no results remaining for 2200/Te.

    Revised TestIDs in SiteID = 2200, StudyID = T2 as follows:
    SDLPL_02010D changed to S0LPL_02010D
    SDLPL_02028D changed to S0LPL_02028D
    SDLPL_E5028D changed to S0LPL_E5028D

    In study 2200/T7 - Newtown Creek Phase 2 Sed Cores 2014 the following corrections were also implemented: Chemcode “HPCDD_T” changed to PCD_T7 "Dioxins, 7HpCDD, total". Chemcode PCD1267 "1,2,6,7-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin" changed to “PCD_T4 "Dioxins, 4TCDD, total".

Application Updates

We are pleased to announce the newest updates to the DIVER Explorer query application in this release:

  • New Keyword Search tool
    • The Explorer home interface is now split into 2 tabs: Guided Query and Keyword Search

    • Users can quickly search through fields and values and filter their results by Data Category or Field Name, or by typing in a value

    • Users can build or run Explorer queries from any of their displayed results

  • Added the concept of “Detail Level” to custom and keyword-based Environmental queries
    • Users can select detail levels of “Overview”, “Field Record” or “Result” when creating “New Environmental Data Queries”

    • Users can change the result level from the Summary tab or the Data and Export tab after running their query to see more or fewer fields

  • Bioassay Data
    • All National Bioassay data are now searchable in Explorer

    • A new Guided Query has been added under Environmental Data : Chemistry and Bioassay Results > Bioassay Results

    • Users can create custom queries using Overview, Field Record and Result detail levels using the Bioassay data

  • New “Station Group” field added
    • Provides continuity with Query Manager “Watershed Databases” - with the same group of stations and sample results.

    • Acts as a pre-filter (similar to Region)

    • Now a user selectable field

    • Added to Bioassay and Contaminant Chemistry Guided Queries

  • Data and Export Tab (combined Table and Export tabs)
    • Combined the Export tab with the Table tab, renaming it “Data and Export”

    • Columns that contain only invalid values (blank, -999, Not Defined or Not Available) are now automatically hidden in the table and available in the “Columns” button

    • The Download menu on the “Data and Export” tab now gives the user 3 options for download types:

      • User Created Data Table

      • Complete Data Table

      • Export Package

    • Added a Detail Level field above the table which will re-run the query when changed

    • Filters: The date filter range should not go all the way to the 1/1/1900 value for no data, it makes it difficult to choose a date from the calendar function.

    • Filter Defect: Editing a date filter on the Data and Export tab now works correctly

  • Photo Tab
    • Added option to display image id on photos

    • Users can now sort by date

    • Default photos per row has been changed to 3 from 5

    • Fixed an issue with broken images appearing on the Photos tab

  • Summary Tab
    • Added Station Group and Case/Activity to the Summary Tab for all Chemistry and Bioassay guided queries

    • Added Data Category for all queries

    • Added Detail Level field for custom Environmental queries (user can change detail level of query with this field)

    • The Date field now shows the range without 1/1/1900 (the “no data” value for dates). If there are not defined dates, the text says "6/5/2012 to 7/13/2016 (and data where dates are not defined)"

    • Defect: Fixed the Summary tab secondary vertical scroll bar for queries with extremely long names

  • Guided Queries
    • Chemistry and Bioassay guided queries can now have up to 3 user editable pre-filters

    • Added Case/Activity to Single Contaminant, Multiple Contaminant, and Total PAH guided queries Table and Export.

    • Add “Workspace Name” filter and “--No Additional Filter--” to Photologger queries

    • Remove 'Chemical List' as a choice in the pre-filter field for Multiple Contaminant Results guided queries and automatically add it to the Analysis filter

  • General Explorer Updates
    • Explorer now supports continuous panning across the 180th meridian

    • Changed the default basemap in Explorer to the ESRI Ocean Basemap for better visibility of queried data

    • Added 3 new base layers: ESRI StreetMaps, ESRI Light Gray Canvas, and ESRI Dark Gray Canvas

    • User interfaces in most areas of Explorer were updated to improve usability.

    • Charts are no longer displayed if they have only a single value, or have more than 20 values
