AbstractApproximately four months ago, there was a requirement to transfer legacy data to a modern searchable database. The data is comprised of important information acquired during the testing of boat models in the Ice Tank at the National Research Council’s (NRC), Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT). The data transfer would proceed in two phases. The first phase involved writing a program, using the Python language of computer programming, that would read the test files collected from the Ice Tank and retain the data in an internal data structure. Phase two would take the program a step further and would store that data within IOT’s Microsoft SQL Server7 searchable database. Upon reviewing the specifications and constraints of the project, phase one is now approximately 95% completed. Phase two is still in progress. Once phase two is completed and the database is transferred, it will allow researchers within IOT to search for any information they require that relates to the tests carried out in the Ice tank.
