The parameter database toolbox provides a connection between Ecolego and a parameter database.

Overview

The parameter database (developed by Facilia) is a relational database schema for storing, managing and quality assuring parameter values. The database is built on Microsoft SQLServer Express, and can be installed either on a server or the same machine as Ecolego.

An application is available for download that allow users to view, add and review parameter data. The toolbox makes it possible for Ecolego users to directly access the database from within Ecolego.

The parameter database contains parameter data (values, probability density functions and statistics) as well as lookup table values and settings.

Connecting Ecolego to the parameter database has the following advantages:

  • Centralized handling of parameter values
  • Separation between modelling and parameter data collection
  • Parameter naming consequent between modellers in the same project
  • Traceability (-“who is responsible for this value”)
  • Faster model development by using the quick-import tools
  • Quality assurance
