Blocks VegBank - Bug #797: [903] Methods :Cover method:reviewResolved11/13/2002


#1 Updated by John Harris over 19 years ago

Bugs the require new feature to allow vb users to add information to the plots
database directly -- ie, not via adding a plot.

#2 Updated by Michael Lee over 19 years ago

This is a more commonly used bit of data that users will want to add outside of
a plot. Also somewhat simple in implementation -- simple form linked to one or
two tables. (A bit more for community -- but this functionality is quite
central to what we're working on.)

I need more information on this, where is the form, where is the design
overview? someones head I suppose. This bug is really sliping off schedule.
Should have looked at it earlier!

We decided this would be a 1.0 task in SBA in Jan.

#5 Updated by Robert Peet over 19 years ago

What is expected is a form that will allow a user to create a coverclass
method. All plots entered MUST specify a cover class method and adher to it.
Thus, the NPS PLOTS loader could simply reference the NPS cover method and
look up the values to store. However the current method is probably more
efficient, but we do need to make certain that the loader references the NPS
cover method. All this shows that for all loader methods we need a way to
identify the method in the input stream so that we can store the method, and
if necessary look up its details to cover coverclass values to percentages
during data loading.

A typical form for loading a method would be roughly as follows:
One incidence of the coverMethod table with a name in coverMethod:coverType
Then, a set of incidences of the coverIndex table.

Here is a typical case.
CoverType=Carolina Vegetation Survey
CoverCode=1, upperLimit=0.1, lowerlimit=0, coverPercent=0.05
CoverCode=2, upperLimit=1, lowerlimit=0.1, coverPercent=0.5
CoverCode=3, upperLimit=2, lowerlimit=1, coverPercent=1.5
CoverCode=4, upperLimit=5, lowerlimit=2, coverPercent=3.5
CoverCode=5, upperLimit=10, lowerlimit=5, coverPercent=7.5
CoverCode=6, upperLimit=25, lowerlimit=10, coverPercent=17.5
CoverCode=7, upperLimit=50, lowerlimit=25, coverPercent=37.5
CoverCode=8, upperLimit=75 lowerlimit=50, coverPercent=62.5
CoverCode=9, upperLimit=95, lowerlimit=75, coverPercent=85
CoverCode=10, upperLimit=100, lowerlimit=95, coverPercent=97.5

The form should also contain an option to cite a reference for the method, so
this will require that the reference module and a form for entering a
reference be completed before this form is completed.

current form development from MTL can be viewed at:

#8 Updated by Michael Lee over 19 years ago

Note that the UI has been upgraded on this newest version of the form to include
jsp and to link better to datadictionary, explain fields, etc.

changed from components that are to be deleted to "misc" so that bugs don't get
deleted with component. Sorry for all the email.
