Imports time series data from files in Hydrologic Engineering Center Data Storage System format:

The information about time series is stored as "dss path" in 6 parts:

/<part A>/<part B>/<part C>/<part D>/<part E>/<part F>/

From that will be extracted:

  • location id (if <part A> is present, <part A> and <part B> are combined with a space in between): <part A> <part B>
  • location id (if <part A> is NOT present, only <part B> is used): <part B>
  • parameter id: <part C>
  • qualifier id (if <part F> is present): <part F>

<part D> and <part E> are ignored in this import but provide information about the data and time storage.

This format is also available in the export module: HecDss (export)

Import type

The import type is HecDss


Here is an example file with dss path //CAMP FAR WEST OUTFLOW/FLOW-LOC/27SEP2010/IR-DAY//


Here is a very simple import configuration example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<timeSeriesImportRun xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">
