Please provide feedback (comments/questions) on the CDM Smith Technical Memo for Task 1&2 – PCB Data Compatibility Functionality Review.

The Technical Track Work Group discussed the memo at their June 7th 2017 meeting and  based on those discussion will provide the following recommendations/requests to CDM Smith:

  • The database should provide flexibility in analysis (i.e. to choose any blank correction method, choose to use or not use NJ flagged data, etc)
  • Add in an export function in the format that EIM would require based on EIM data input fields.
