A Test Model Proj For Students
I have need to a simple database that organize some data;
the data have several variables and time and place dimensions.
the database should allows users to extract subsets of data according to selected variables (e..g. variable 1, variable 2 etc.)
according to time range (e.g. from 1990 to 2008), & according to selected places (e.g. city 1, city 2 , etc).
The database will allow displaying the results as a web page and exporting the results of a query to a selected format (e.g. Microsoft Excel file)
There are two key factors integrated into the webpage :
variable definitions (i.e. the metadata) shall be displayed in a box When the user movers the mouse pointer on a variable in the result of a query.
some calculations of averages for some variable over time interval (e.g. average from 1990-2000 etc. ) and over places (e.g. average value of three or four cities) etc..
(basic skills in mathematical functions is important)
* The admin must be able to add and delete, and update variables, places and years etc.
* The admin must be able to make security constraints such as allow and disallow displaying the results of query from the database (e..g. user should provide password to download a file)
* This not the final product its just used as a test model project for students.
* the webpage will have some graphics and map that links each location to a page such that
when the user move the mouse pointer on the name of the location, it is highlighted on the map immediately..
