AQUARIUS 3.0 R4 features improved system performance for larger agencies, more efficient data centralization, and more powerful analytics and reporting capabilities.
Vancouver, Canada, July 9, 2012 – Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in providing innovative software solutions for hydrologic data management and analysis, announced today the release of AQUARIUS 3.0 R4. With this latest system release, AQUARIUS delivers improved data centralization, increased system performance, and better reporting to meet the evolving needs of small to very large environmental monitoring organizations.
Today’s water resource managers and hydrologists must handle more hydrometric data than ever before. Modern gauging technologies are collecting vast amounts of real-time water data that are complex to manage and analyze. With Version 3.0 R4, organizations benefit from significant performance and functionality improvements to enable their hydrologists to better centralize and manage growing volumes of hydrometric data, ultimately helping them to improve the effectiveness of their environmental monitoring programs.
AQUARIUS 3.0 R4 features these following system upgrades.
- Improved External Data Integration. AQUARIUS R4 introduces a new synchronization framework for connecting to existing database systems, making it easier to integrate remote location information and/or discrete measurements. The external data can now be accessed directly, without the need to migrate the data to the AQUARIUS Server.
- Larger Hydrometric Network Management. Performance improvements to the Location Manager and Field Visit tools allow users of AQUARIUS Springboard to quickly launch these Quick Tools to manage thousands of sites/locations.
- More Flexible Oracle Database Deployments. Now any schema name can be used when deploying in Oracle, allowing for more than one version of the AQUARIUS database to be installed concurrently.
- More Powerful Server Performance. AQUARIUS 3.0 R4 features improved data management performance under very high server loads for larger environmental monitoring environments.
Users of AQUARIUS 3.0 R4 also benefit from improved reporting, more complex times series calculations, and better data auditability.
- Improved Custom SQL-Based Reporting. Organizations can now more easily produce custom reports using SQL queries to meet their operational and regulatory reporting needs.
- More Flexible Calculated Time Series. With AQUARIUS 3.0 R4, it is possible to apply up to 10 inputs to a calculated time series, allowing for more complex derivations (such as evapo-transpiration calculations).
- Better Appended Data Tracking. When AQUARIUS appends an input file to a time series, it now keeps track of the source file. This further improves the audit trail of data, making it more credible and defensible.
“As the water data management and analysis system of choice by North America’s largest environmental monitoring agencies, AQUARIUS sets the industry standard for hydrometric data management. AQUARIUS is continuously upgraded to meet the changing needs of our diverse customer base,” said Ed Quilty, President and CEO, Aquatic Informatics. “This latest release ensures the optimal performance of AQUARIUS under the demanding requirements of the largest agencies, and it continues to deliver new features for organizations of all sizes.”
Over 50 additional enhancements available with AQUARIUS 3.0 R4 are highlighted on the popular AQUARIUS 360° Support Portal. AQUARIUS customers are encouraged to visit the active online community and to take advantage of the latest AQUARIUS upgrade.
