Abstract
Research Note 2004/10 documented the Canadian ‘FIVE-W’ database (5W DB) and recorded a snapshot of the data on Canadian Forces operations between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 2003. The 2004 5W DB captured this data in a Microsoft Word document using tables to hold the data and a hyperlink-enabled table-of-contents to facilitate navigation. The 5W DB Word file was subsequently updated for a brief period after 2004. In 2012 an update of the 5W DB was published that generated a partial revision of expeditionary operations up to 31 Dec 2011. There was some urgency to this update allowing only for basic data to be collected. Detailed research and the addition of new domestic and continental operations were deferred. Furthermore, the 2012 update was provided as a completely separate Word document. The next revision was contracted in 2015 to bring the database up-to-date, complete the work started in 2012, and to add the growing number of domestic operations.
