What is GLA-Data?
GLA-Data is a comprehensive, web-accessible, geographic information system (GIS)-based, database management system (DBMS) and was originally developed to manage well data and analyze water quality information. Customized versions of GLA-Data currently serve more than 15 clients across the West. GLA-Data provides a user-friendly, streamlined system to manage water supply and groundwater monitoring well-related processes.
GLA-Data has been customized for three different water well management priorities:
- Well registration, permitting, and reporting for Texas groundwater conservation districts (GCDs) and large landholders
- Water quality management and reporting for landfills/waste disposal sites
- Reporting and compliance for Groundwater Sustainability Plans for California Groundwater Sustainability Agencies
GLA-Data utilizes a .NET 4.5 (C#), which is a server-side scripting engine for dynamically-generated webpages from Microsoft. Programming a website using .NET employs various built-in objects of the .NET framework, enabling dynamic webpages to be designed using familiar form controls, handling HTML rendering internally on the web server. The web application and data repository reside either within a secure Cloud Service or on DBS&A’s servers, securely behind the DBS&A System Administration’s firewall, unless our clients choose to host the system.
