Abstract [en]

This report describes the process of organizing the research material of a PhD thesis into a database, and the development of an application in order to access the information. The thesis relates to rainfall-induced landslides in the capital of Honduras: The data are a collection of press-based information related to these landslides over a period of 26 years and stored in several Excel files. The task has been to analyze the data and organize them into a conceptual database model. After processing, the data were transferred from CSV files into a SQLite database. A friendly and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) was developed to allow users to query the database according to the specifications made by the author of the thesis. The queries of the application together with the database tables were tuned for performance according to database design  principles and the SQLite documentation.
