Web Applications

These new Web Applications do not require any special plug-ins to operate. These are beta versions of the applications, so any feedback would be appreciated.

TOCAS (Tribal Online Accounting System)

TOCAS contains the most recent salmon catches for Treaty and Non Treaty fisheries. Formerly New SoftData and Fast Report

Old TOCAS (for reference)

Recreational Angling Impact Database (RAID)

The Recreational Angling Impact Database (RAID) is a mark-selective fishery (MSF) database containing estimates of the numbers of salmon released and retained, number of mortalities, and information on coded-wire tags (CWTs) recovered in MSFs. The database currently includes the ability to produce reports on sport fishery impacts, CWTs observed in the fishery samples, and estimates of marked and unmarked double index tag (DIT) mortalities in MSFs. The development and implementation of this database has been a joint effort of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC).

Currently the database has these estimates for Chinook salmon mark-selective fisheries in Puget Sound statistical areas (WDFW Catch Areas 5 through 13) for 2003-2010.

MHCLS Distribution Files

HCLS – Web HCLS contains historic catches from 1952 to 1970 for all salmon species and steelhead. The data is summarized by Area, Gear and Date. Some Treat and non Treaty breakout is available in the later years.

Fish ID Program

Citrix Applications

NW Indian Virtual Library – e.g. Boldt Case Database –Tutorial

These Applications require the Citrix ICA plug-in to function. Get the plug-in from our server or download from citrix.com. Then open the Citrix configuration file to establish your conenction.

Account Information

To access most applications you will need to set up an account with the NWIFC. If you would like an account call or e-mail Mike Messenger ((360) 438-1180, ).

Saving files from NWIFC applications

Most of the Applications on our web site look like standard windows applications. Saving a file works just like saving a file in any windows applications with the following differences:

1. When the file save window pops up and shows the Current C: drive this is the C: drive on the Citrix server located in Olympia. You most likely do not want to save the file on the C: drive here so you need to go to the drives box and select the drive that says client C: ( or which ever client drive you want to save to). This will usually be v: drive so you should see an entry that says v:\\Client\C$ . When you select this drive your browser will pop up a dialog box that will say that an application is trying to access your hard drive. You will be given three choices but if you want to save information to your hard drive you will need to give the application Full Access permission. After you select Full Access the Directory box should show the directories on your C: drive. Select the directory you want to save the information to and press OK.

2. Since you are saving the file over the Internet ( probably at a speed of 28k or slower) it will be MUCH slower than your normal computer speed. A 100k file will probably take a minute or two to save.

Printing files from NWIFC Applications

Just like saving a file, printing works as it normally does in Windows, but there are also some differences.

1. The BEST, most CONSISTENT and FASTEST way to print from any of the NWIFC’s applications is to use the Acrobat PDF printer. This is particularly true for those accessing our applications over the Internet. The three main reasons for using the PDF printer are: The PDF files are much smaller than print jobs so they will transfer much faster over the Internet, the PDF printer will always show up in your list of available printers and you can save your PDF files and print them again without having to reconnect to the original application. The only downside is you will need to download and install Adobe Acrobat reader to view and print the PDF files( See the section on Adobe Acrobat above). To use the PDF printer do the following: When you select print from any of the applications the normal print dialog box will appear. Select Acrobat PDFWriter on LPT1: from the list of printers. A dialog box will appear that says Save PDF File As. This box allows you to pick the location to save the PDF file (See the section on saving files from NWIFC applications above for details on saving the file to the right location). Once the file is saved to your local hard drive you can open it with the Acrobat Reader and print it if you desire.

2. If you want to try to print directly to the printers attached to your computer do the following. When you select the print option the normal windows print dialog box will appear. Your selection of printers will look a little different than normal. You will see a list of your printers preceded by your computers name (As defined in your registry) or a randomly generated name such as Inet0001.

Not all printers may show up in the printer selection box. Citrix will attempt to figure out what printers you have attached to your computer. Citrix’s success in doing this depends on many factors but the primary one is how common your printer is. Citrix usually does a good job detecting common printers like HP, Epson etc. because it has drivers for these printers. If you have an obscure printer or a very new model that Citrix does not have a driver for It may not show in the list of available printers. If none of your printers show up in the list and you do not want to use the Adobe PDF call or e-mail Mike Messenger ((360) 438-1180,  ) and we may be able to load a driver for it.
