Over the past year, we have continued to invest in enhancing the AQUARIUS software suite, and we are pleased to announce the release of AQUARIUS Time Series 3.6. AQUARIUS 3.6 includes a number of enhancements, including the addition of blended rating curves and improvements to Hotfolders.
Stream discharge is arguably the single most important variable in a hydrological monitoring program, and it is also one of the most difficult variables to measure and monitor on a continuous basis in natural streams and rivers. A single rating model in AQUARIUS Time-Series contains all of the information that describes a channel over time. This includes any number of ratings, shifts for those ratings, periods of applicability, and now as of version 3.6, blending periods from one rating to the next. It centralizes the information and tools required to develop the best rating curves, giving water resource managers the highest confidence in their calculations of flow.
In addition to blended ratings, AQUARIUS Time-Series 3.6 also features improved configuration for Hotfolders. You no longer need access permissions on your AQUARIUS Server’s file system to create Hotfolders or to use them to append data to your time series. This makes it much easier to work in a strict IT environment or in a cloud computing scenario.
We’re also excited to share with you a new video created by AQUARIUS Support Specialist, Alex Graf, to get you up and running with blended rating curves. It’s available, along with further details about all of the new features in AQUARIUS 3.6, in our popular AQUARIUS 360° Support Portal.
We encourage you to visit this active online community, where you can download the latest version of AQUARIUS Time-Series, exchange information with other users, and keep up to date on developments. If you are a water resource manager who is new to AQUARIUS and would like to learn more about the system, we would be delighted to give you a demonstration using your own data.
