System Outputs


The system can out put all information in one of four formats:
  • Printed Report and Graphics Directly to HTML to allow views via a web browser
  • Output to Excel and Word if additional text and data is required
  • PDF Files via Adobe Acrobat
  • Standard reports showing all measurements per interval, maximum and minimum over period and average data are available.

All reports are backed up with easy to read graphs. Each system is also customised with reports specific to that site. The graphics engines in Ecostat allow the user to easily run pre-determined graphs like yearly and monthly averages as well as wind roses and pollution roses. The system generates all these graphs as standard reports. As new graphs are created or released and updates are made to the system – these changes are then available automatically to each user. It is also possible to define specific user reports for clients so that they have unique reports when they log into Ecostat. This option is discussed at time of configuration and setup. Exports of data on a regular basis and specific format are also available to Ecostat users. The Ecostat graphics package creates high resolution images which can be imported into popular packages like PowerPoint and Word.
