Installation Questions

What is the AQSProd database?
AQSProd is the Oracle relational database that contains the Air Quality data reported by state, county, city, local and tribal agencies to the US EPA.  This database was initially loaded from data extracted from the older AQS on the EPA mainframe in December 2001.  For more general information on AQS, please see the information from the EPA home area:  http://www.epa.gov/epahome/dmedia.htm#air 
Installation/setup instructions

AQS is a web-enabled program, so there is usually very little to install or setup.

First time setup instructions are available from the AQS Web Application page or directly at:   http://www.epa.gov/ttn/airs/airsaqs/aqsweb/aqswebsetup.htm
