This webinar will explore USASK’s Water Information System KISTERS (WISKI) environment, including continuous (i.e. time series), discrete (lab or biology samplings), asset, and raster data types. Emphasis will be placed on automating data import, quality assurance, and reporting / exports. The second half of this webinar will focus on the new KISTERS web portal which is being implemented at USASK and provides a simple and intuitive method of submitting, visualizing, and acquiring data. Attendees will learn how to access these tools and more importantly, manipulate them efficiently to reduce time spent on data formatting, validation, and report generation.
