Performance Evaluation of the New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana Hurricane Protection System: Draft Final Report of the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force, Volume IX - General Appendices   [open pdf - 4MB]

"The IPET [Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force] Data Repository is a data management system for storing, delivering, and maintaining the authoritative datasets associated with this study. The Data Repository contains a comprehensive set of data and information about the conditions before and after Hurricane Katrina, a complete history of the hurricane protection projects' construction and maintenance, as well as the information and analytic results of this performance evaluation. The architecture of the Data Repository, described in the Data Collection and Management section of IPET Report 1, is comprised of three main components: an unstructured data component, a GIS [geographic information system] data component, and a large datasets component. An overall data manager integrates the data stored in the three components such that users may access all datasets from one central application without having to know which data is stored in which component. Following is a description of each component of the Repository."
