Abstract : HEC's Data Storage System (HEC-DSS or DSS) is a database system that was developed to meet needs for data storage and retrieval for water resource studies. The system enables efficient storage and retrieval of time series data (such as precipitation hyetographs or hydrographs of stage, discharge, etc.) and other data-types for which storage in blocks of contiguous data elements is most appropriate. The DSS consists of a library of subroutines which can be readily used with application programs to enable retrieval and storage of information. At present, approximately 20 application programs have been adapted in this fashion. In addition, DSS utility programs have been developed, data entry programs, a powerful graphics program, a report generator, and a program that performs mathematical transformations. Macros, selection screens, and other user interface features combine with DSS products to provide a set of tools whose application is limited only by the ingenuity of the user.
