SOFTWARE Q: AN EFFICIENT PROGRAMME FOR THE ACQUISITION, EVALUATION AND
MANAGEMENT OF RIVER DISCHARGE DATA
1. Purpose and objectives
Software Q is a program for the acquisition, evaluation and management of discharge easurements, which are made by using propeller current meters
or point-velocity-sensors. Software Q offers a variety of graphic
representations and includes the calculation of both a discharge-rating
Software Q runs under the operating systems WINDOWS 3.11, WINDOWS
95/98 and WINDOWS NT. It stores and manages the data in a relational
database system. The algorithms follow the German "Guideline for Water
Level and Discharge Measurement". Special features are:
Measuring site; measuring device and measuring method. The program can
evaluate: one-point, two-point, and multi-point measurements, integrated measurements and combined measurements. At least three genuine measuring verticals must be used. This means together with the two banks a total of
Recording of the measurement; results of the calculation; velocity distribution curve (total view and selected details); cross-section; isotach diagram; results displayed in a discharge rating curve; lists of
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
Operational System: WINDOWS 3.11, WINDOWS 95/98 or WINDOWS NT.
Personal Computer with the following minimal configuration: 486-processor, 8 MB memory, 15" screen, resolution 600x480.
6. Form of presentation
Program on diskette, CD-ROM, handbook and storyboard.
7. Operational experience
The programme is used routinely by operational hydrological services, water authorities, water associations, consulting firms and universities.
8. Originator and technical support
Quantum Hydrometrie Gesellschaft für Meß- und Systemtechnik mbH
10. Conditions on use
A handling fee of 1780 DM is charged for the program without automatic measurement recording. A handling fee of 2500 DM is charged for the program including automatic measurement recording.
