Here is an internship story from one of our first students in the Information Systems major, Doug Miller:
Scott Morrison of West Virginia Department of Natural Resources is working on a project where they are tracking Muskie activity in the lake at North Bend State Park. He originally used an Excel spreadsheet to organize the data but quickly realized he needed a database to store the information. He chose to use the Microsoft Access database, after meeting with Scott we realized there were a lot of results for fish in the same area since the receivers continually recorded readings and the fish would swim around the receivers.
After seeing a need to make the information more useful, I was able to consult with Professor Van Camp and devise a program written in Visual Basic within the database. The program keeps tracks of the number of records, the first time the receiver picks up the reading, the last time the receiver picks up the reading, the fishes ID tag, and the receiver ID.
