Introduction to HIEv



The HIEv data capture system, hosted at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) at Western Sydney University, is an application allowing both automated (e.g via sensor-based networks) and manual upload of data into a secure and centralised data server. A web-based interface sitting on top of the data allows registered users the ability to explore and download hosted data for further scientific analysis and exploration. At its core the HIEv is designed to facilitate and encourage the sharing of, reuse of, and collaboration around data, thus maximising scientific advancement.
