Drawing on data from both KiECO and WISKI, a new script removes significant frustration from manual data filtering, configuration and extraction.
Run the report on any number of sampling locations tracked in WISKI, allowing biologists to quickly assess stream/river conditions in a study area.
The script automatically identifies the correct criteria, extracts data, runs the calculation and generates a standard graphical output.
It uses criteria identified by Chu et al (2009) to isolate daily maximum air temperature and water temperature between specific times during summer months to classify streams into five thermal categories: cold, cold-cool, cool, cool-warm, and warm water.
Overlay these classifications with fish records in KiECO, making the most of WISKI as your single point of truth for watershed health.
The standardize script can be implemented in any WISKI instance with minor modification; contact us to discuss the fit of this script to your data.
Kudos to Cataraqui Conservation for bringing this development to the KISTERS community!
