This paper describes the WISKI Hydrological, Meteorological, and environmental data management software package. In this paper are primarily concerned with hydrological data management. WISKI is a Microsoft WindowsTM based client/server system that uses relational databases, and was designed in cooperation with water agency authorities, engineers and hydrologists. It combines the modem standards of data management with advanced tools to collect, edit, store, and present time series data to intranet, intemet and GIS users. WISKI consists of three parts, a remote data acquisition server, a central database server for storage and management, and a WindowsTM based hydrological workbench. The system allows automatic and effortless flow of time series data from the measuring site to the database. Data are reviewed using powerful graphical and tabular interface tools. Accepted data are then ready for further analysis using either internal or external statistical and modeling packages. The WISKI package is a complete solution for decision support and management of resources or events.
