Secure web delivery of research data: (1) proof of concept and (2) delivery

The Sustainable Grazing Systems (SGS) Key Program ran from 1997 to 2002. One of the important outcomes of that Program was the SGS national experiment database which was created as six separate but compatible MS Access databases for use on desktop computers. This Proof of Concept project has successfully demonstrated that two of the above relational databases from the SGS key program could readily be combined into a single large database which was then successfully migrated to a SQL server implementation. Queries of the SQL server combined database can be carried out with simple point and click operations via a Web portal developed within this project. User-selected su​​bsets of data can be exported in formats which clients commonly use to further explore data. Provision of access to these datasets will add value to the prior SGS investments long into the future.
