Stationary Measurement

The Windows-based Stationary Measurement real-time and post-processing software program was designed specifically for use in rivers. The features in this software make the ADP a more powerful tool, and allow you to reliably use our RiverSurveyor systems in more places than ever before. The RiverSurveyor system includes a built-in compass—essential when measuring discharge with a profiler from a vessel in moving-bed conditions. Combined with the Stationary Measurement software, the system can be used from a floating vessel in moving bed conditions without the need to use complicated (or undependable) DGPS systems. In northern climates, RiverSurveyor systems can even be used "year-round" with the ability to make discharge measurements under ice!
