  GIS Scripts GCE ArcGIS Python Scripts
Description - Eight Python scripts (version 2.5) were developed to dynamically generate ESRI shapefiles. The scripts use input data from a database or csv file, and the output is saved as a zipfile. Each script has two variants: 1) a prompt interface, which allows the user to pass in variables from the command line, and 2) hard coded variables, which allows the script to be utilized in an integrated information system. The scripts are organized into two main categories. The first category receives input data from a database. Six scripts receive input data from a database, and are further categorized according to their output. These are: 1) One point shapefile that contains one or more points, 2) One polygon shapefile that contains two or more polygons, and 3) One polygon shapefile that contains one polygon per shapefile. The SQL and ArcGIS attribute table fields are dynamically generated based on variables that are either passed in or hard coded in the script. The other main category, a total of two scripts, receives input data from a csv file. For every csv file in a directory, one point shapefile is generated for every row in the csv file. The ArcGIS attribute field names are dynamically generated based on the first row in the csv file. The code is thoroughly commented.

  MATLAB Toolbox GCE Data Toolbox for MATLAB - Public Version 3.93
Description - The GCE Data Toolbox is a MATLAB software library that supports metadata-based analysis, visualization, transformation and management of ecological data sets. The toolbox is based on the GCE Data Structure, a specification for storing tabular data along with comprehensive metadata and quality control information. Metadata fields are queried by toolbox programs for all operations, allowing data values to be managed and analyzed appropriately based on the type of information they represent. This semantic processing approach supports highly automated and intelligent data analysis and ensures data set validity throughout all processing steps. Data structure size is only limited by available computer memory, and large data sets (e.g. >1 million records) can effectively be managed and analyzed using standard desktop computer hardware.

See the GCE Data Toolbox web page (http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/im/tools/data_toolbox.htm) for more information.

  Research Software Nutrient Budgeter - A MATLAB-based program to simplify the calculation of watershed nitrogen and phosphorus budgets
Description - Nutrient Budgeter is a MATLAB-based program for calculating nitrogen and phosphorus inputs to watersheds. Nitrogen inputs calculated include atmospheric deposition, fertilizer use, net food and feed import, and biological fixation. Phosphorus inputs calculated include fertilizer use and net food and feed import.

Example input and output files are included with the MATLAB source code (.zip file), and a user guide is also provided (.doc and .pdf file).
