Event driven software package for the database of Integrated Coastal and Marine Area Management (ICMAM) (Developed in 'C')
MetadataShow full item record
National Institute of Oceanography (NIO, RC, Visakhapatnam, India) had taken up the Integrated Coastal and Marine Area Management (ICMAM) project funded by Department of Ocean Development (DOD), New Delhi, India. The main objective of this project is to classify the Coastal Waters of East Coast of India, by compiling and collecting various data sets, viz., physical, chemical, biological, micro-biological, meteorological and climatilogical. The data was compiled for the stations, viz., Digha, Konark, Puri, Gopalpur, Visakhapatnam, Krishnapatnam, Pondicherry, Nagapatnam and Tuticorin. A huge database was generated for the above stations and also few cruises were organized on board Sagarpurvi, to collect data. Based on the overall information, the coastal waters will be classified which will help the state governments and pollution control boards to plan the future industries/activities along the coast. The project was successfully completed and the final reports were submitted to D.O.D. in the year 2003. An event driven software package was developed for the above database. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) software using 'C' language helps to retrieve the required parameter at a particular place/station. This is very helpful to search for the data of a particular station. The present developed software is a set of 'C' language programs, linked by number of functions and user defined header files. This software is used for rapid retrieval and display of physical, chemical, biological, micro-biological, meteorological and climatilogical data. Data are stored as sequential access disk files for rapid access. Programs are interactive and have graphics capability. A wide range of display and analysis outputs are available. Routines are described from a user's point of view, with output examples.
