I am pleased to announce that a searchable PSE certification database will soon be available to the hobby, I think that having this resource will allow hobbyists make better informed buying decisions.
First, a huge thank you to SCF member widglo46
who invested his time compiling the data and images; without his efforts this project would not exist.
Second, thank you to PSE for granting permission for this project to move forward and to use their images. PSE has requested that we limit the search function to the last 10 years because presenting grading information before that time period would have limited value.
Here is where the development currently stands. I have completed designing and implemented the database and queries on a SQL server. This is a very large database which includes all USA, Canada, Hawaii, and CSA certifications from 01/01/2009 thru 01/13/2020. The database will be updated periodically through the year with the newest certifications. I have been uploading data/images for the last few weeks and have written the code for the user interface webpages. The total development scope of work is approximately 150 man hours and I estimate that I am about 50% complete as of today. I am targeting a completion date of 02/22.
Rather than having a single webpage which searches across all USA, Canada, Hawaii, and CSA certifications (which frankly would be the easiest development), there will be a separate webpages for USA, Canada, Hawaii, and CSA certs. Here are two screen captures which will give you an idea of how it will work.
Finally, if anyone would like to help development by testing the interface before release please let me know and I will send you links.
