About Report Generator
Report Generator is a web-based
tool developed by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)
National Water and Climate Center (NWCC).
The application uses long-term
snowpack, precipitation, reservoir, streamflow, and soils data from a variety of
quality-controlled sources to create reports.
choose from predefined templates or build
tabular reports may be exported to different formats, including
comma-separated value (CSV) files and Excel spreadsheets. Charts can be saved to Adobe
format or other graphics formats, such as JPG and PNG.
Data Collection Network
|The Report Generator
network incorporates data from many agency databases. The NRCS snow
survey flagship database, the Water and
Climate Information System (WCIS), provides a wealth of data,
including manually-collected snow course data and information from
automated Snow Telemetry (SNOTEL) and Soil Climate Analysis Network
(SCAN) stations across the United States.
Report Generator also
uses precipitation, streamflow, and reservoir data from the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), the
Applied Climate Information System (ACIS), the U.S.
Geological Survey (USGS), various water districts and other entities.
SNOTEL monitoring site
to creating reports, Report Generator lets you view information
on sites, including "metadata," such as elevation, latitude/longitude
and hydrologic unit code (HUC).
View photos of the site,
including a site map (in Google maps when available).
Report Generator Chart
Generator creates reports in both tabular and chart format. In the
current release, only single-station charting is supported.
Future releases will have
multi-station reporting capabilities, as well as the ability to group
stations (providing basin level analysis).
