Volunteer Assessment Database Tools

It is useful to summarize survey data for the purposes of reporting, data sharing and data entry into your own or other on-line databases. To help, WV Save Our Streams has developed spreadsheets and Word documents for survey summaries.

Updates

  • Macroinvertebrates: There is a section that requires all macroinvetebrates from the survey to be listed. The VAD has drop-downs of the taxonomic names listed by their tolerance.
  • Habitat: To satisfy the requirements of the database enter the rating of Optimal, Suboptimal, Marginal or Poor for Level-1 if you used data sheets prior to 2010. The most recent data sheets use number scales typical of most biosurveys; the numbers should be entered instead of the rating.
  • VAD Downloads: Summary survey data from the major watersheds.
