VegA Data EditoR (VADER)

VADER is a java application designed to very quickly and efficiently retrieve large amounts of layerhigh-resolution sensor data. Its functionality is similar to dbBadger but should have much improved query times.


dbBadger retrieves and temporally synchronizes data from the Vega datamodel. It includes functionality to output unsynchronized data, temporally synchronized data, interpolated data, and time-weighted aggregated data.


Vega is a tool for viewing graphed data from Vega grouped by site. It is primarily utilized for manual tech monitoring of sampled variables. All available hi-res streams are plotted. Note: Hi-res water-temp profiles for some sites can be slow to render as they represent a high number of datapoints (over 200,000 from Mendota Buoy). This tool is built upon vegaPlot, described below.

Now Casting*

Now Casting is a nearly real-time buoy obervation and model prediution, nowcasting, was created at the subtropical, alpine lake, Yuan Yang Lake (YYL), in the northern Taiwan by several research groups.  The primary purpose of the nowcasting is to do monitoring YYL physical and partly chemical dynamics in the termporal and spatial variations.
