The Tribal Data Toolbox is a free, stand-alone MS Access database designed for tribal offices to manage their own air monitoring data. As now available, it can manage ambient air monitoring data, including administrative (site, sampler, QC equipment), operational (importing and flagging data), analytical (QC reports, summary reports, charts, ozone NAAQS calculations), and reporting (AQS-format file generation for all pollutant and met data). The Toolbox is form-driven, so that the user does not need to know Access programming to use it. The Toolbox has been tested in many tribal programs and accommodates a wide variety of instruments and dataloggers. All data tables, charts, and reports are easily exportable to MS Word, Excel or Adobe, and the Toolbox could be adapted to manage non-air environmental data. ITEP offers courses and technical assistance on using the Toolbox.
