Structure of current ARSF Database

The database is made up of 9 tables, joined together by relations. See below for a diagram of the database tables and relations

The PI table is made up of the PI's name, address and their email address. The table has and internal field called 'id' which is filled in automatically and is referred to whenever a PI is linked to a project code. If you try and delete a PI, and that PI still has project_codes referring to the PI then the Database will prevent you deleting the PI.

pi Table
Key Field Name Value Type Constraints Notes
Primary Key id Integer(4 Bytes) Required Value is automatically generated.
pi_name Text (variable length) Required
address Text (variable length) Not required as may not be known at time of entry.
email Text (variable length) Not required as may not be known at time of entry.

The projects table contains all the project codes and what PI relates to which project code. Many project codes can relate to one PI.

projects Table
Key Field Name Value Type Constraints Notes
Primary Key project_code Text (variable length) Required
Foreign Key pi_id Integer(4 Bytes) Required The PI's ID from the pi table.
summary Text (variable length)
eufar_code Text (variable length)
objective Text (variable length)

The flights table contains the information about one flight. So if two flights were made in one day, then there would be two entries in the flight table.

flights Table
Key Field Name Value Type Constraints Notes
Primary Key flight_id Integer(4 Bytes) Required Value is automatically generated.
flight_date Date Required The date that the flight took place
primary_ticket Integer(2 Bytes) Required Primary ticket id for trac
kml_file_location Text (variable length)
data_location Text (variable length)
sortie Text (variable length) Required The letter to differentiate multiple flights flown on one day
notes Text (variable length)
secondary_tickets Integer(2 Bytes) Array
data_recieved_on Date

Structure of old ARSF ID-Key-Value database

For furture maintenance.

Indented sublevels mean the child has an "id" field matching the "value" field of the parent. 
If items are on the same level without a separating space, it means they share the same id. 
The flight_* items appear in separate groups, hence the abbreviation.

      sensor_name
      sensor_type
   dataset_time_to_complete
progress_change_date

projectflight_flight_id
   flight_*
projectflight_project_id
   project_code
   project_eufar_code
   project_objective
   project_priority
   project_summary

secondary_ticket_flight_id
   flight_*
secondary_ticket_number

There is a 39th "kml_link" key but this only appears once, so I think it was replaced by flight_kmlweblink but not deleted. 

Adding a new sensor

To add a new sensor to the status page all you need to do is to add two entries to the database:

ID Type Value
f855984c-b5d2-11e3-a2a4-1803732ee31c sensor_name Fenix
f855984c-b5d2-11e3-a2a4-1803732ee31c sensor_type Hyperspectral

The IDs can be anything but they must match.
