This course provides Corps of Engineers' water resource professionals with detailed instruction on available computer software to develop, manage, analyze, and display engineering data in the HEC Data Storage System (HEC-DSS) and the new HEC-DSSVUE program. The procedures and programs provide a convenient system to support a variety of applications including hydrologic, water quality, and flood damage analysis. The system is designed for handling both historical and real-time data

Data management tools, provide a systematic means for organizing, storing, retrieving, manipulating, and sorting data for simulation and plan evaluation models. The HEC data storage systems allow for a convenient, orderly exchange of data among many application and analysis programs. This course focuses on the Data Storage System and the DSSVue graphical user interface. Applications with HEC programs to create data files, to manage and manipulate those data, to provide statistical analysis, and to develop graphical and tabular displays are included. Applications will be demonstrated with workshops and case studies. Major topics covered are (a) use of the HEC Data Storage System; (b) HEC-DSSVue graphical displays; (c) presenting data in a report form; (d) data entry; (e) statistical analysis and mathematical operations of data; (f) hydrologic applications; and g) user-developed scripts for data presentation.

Nominees should be assigned (a) Occupational Series: 0400, 0800, and 1300; (b) Grade: GS-07 or above. Nominees should be familiar with Windows.
