View a plot with simple URL
#3 Updated by Michael Lee over 19 years ago
This bug depends on the simple plot view (bug 863) -- this form should be
sufficient for the results of the URL. The only other thing needed would be
connecting the URL to the query engine so that someone writes a paper and embeds
a hyperlink in their Paper:
"I sampled several plots and the only interesting one was Green River #5 Click
Here</a> to view the plot in VegBank's plot archive!"

Allow a simple url to query an single plot
The accession number is
a) "Vegbank instance"
c) the date the plot was viewed.
There is a plan in the distant future to have several vegbanks so the initail
two char code does this.
The pk is straighforward
The date the plot was viewed is important as we want vegbank to be like a
publication, so on can see what the data looked like on an exact date in the
past. ( means rolling back changes made since the date before displaying the plot ).
The following url does the job now....

Users now have the ability to query plots using a simple URL that takes one of
the two following forms.
The number 125 in these examples is the PK (primary key) in the plots table.
Currently the VegBank instance, VB, and the date, 13jan2003, are ignored. For
this reason I made it so that a user simply needs to enter PK as in the second
Note that the resultant page takes some time to generate. Also please note that
plot ID 125's dominant stratum is broad leaf herbaceous, my personal favorite.
