ViewADP is a Windows-based data display and analysis program. It is a post-processing package designed specifically for use with the data collected by any SonTek Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP). ViewADP allows you to quickly and easily look at and export ADP data in a variety of ways: Contour plots, time-series graphs, 2D/3D profiles, ASCII text files.
The "Pro" version of this software (ViewADPPro) supports directional wave measurement studies and advanced data analysis. Requires the directional waves option (SonWavePro).
