EDEN TransectPlotter is a program for plotting daily water level surfaces and ground elevation profiles for user-specified transects across the Everglades. The water surface can be animated over a user-specified time period and the water surface slope is calculated and displayed along the transect for user-specified distances.
Location of nearby water level gaging stations can be indicated on the transect plot. The location of the gage in meters perpendicular to the transect line provides users with information about data that may have been used in development of the transect plot. The daily median output files must be reviewed to determine if gage data were available for the period of interest.
Additionally, user-provided observations of water level and water depth can be plotted on the transect for comparison with the EDEN water surface. The user-specified distance perpendicular to the transect identifies a selection criteria for observations that are plotted on the transect plot.
All water level and ground elevation data are output in units of North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88).
Note: the latest version of the TransectPlotter was modified to provide for the ability to select an output path for the slope output file. Please see the User's Guide (below) for more information.
