CSLAP Online Data
CSLAP Online Data Collection Now Available
Data from the CSLAP sampling session or from HABS samples can now be entered online. This system will check for errors before the information is submitted, and will speed the transmission and processing of data. In addition, it will provide in-season feedback as soon as the information is entered.
Participating CSLAP lakes must have a user id and password to sign on to the site at www.CSLAPdata.org . To get that information, email your name, lake name, county, and lake number (if known) to firstname.lastname@example.org and the credentials will be provided.
If you participate in CSLAP and use the online data collection program, then you can also generate in-season reports that will give you information about your lake for this season right after you take your readings and submit the information. For example, the Secchi readings for the current year are displayed and are compared to averages of prior years. Here's one example of a Secchi in-season report from 2015.
