1 ADCP Measurements: Laptop to NWIS via SWAMI
Use ‘mute’ when you are not speaking Never put your phone on ‘hold’ We will be using the chat window for asking questions The seminar will start in a few minutes…

2 ADCP Measurements: Laptop to NWIS via SWAMI
April, May 2010 Elizabeth Hittle, Joe Nielsen

3 What are we going to cover?
Overall process Introduction to SWAMI Loading a WRII file Measurement classification Loading a SWAMI file into SiteVisit SiteVisit summary What’s to come in 4.10 Other issues

4 ADCP measurement into SiteVisit via SWAMI
At site Begin a site inspection in SWAMI Perform ADCP measurement Export it as HYDROML Import HYDROML into SWAMI Continue with site inspection In office Import site inspection into NWIS View results in SiteVisit Overall process and topics we are going to cover

5 What is SWAMI? Surface Water Measurement and Inspection
Field application for recording all aspects of a Surface Water Site Visit Handheld on PocketPC Laptop via emulator software Direct collection of AA and Pygmy measurement data via CMCsp Imports WinRiver II HydroML files into SWAMI Outputs USGS HydroML files for direct processing into NWIS via the SiteVisit loader CMCsp Current Meter signal processor – counts manual clicks Notice you have to import a WinRiver hydroML file into SWAMI just to export a USGS hydroML that can be imported directly into NWIS. This is because RDI has not kept up with the USGS HydroML scheme (nor do we expect them to anytime soon). Therefore it is necessary to use SWAMI to translate the RDI hydroML.

6 SiteVisit tasks in SWAMI
Discharge Measurements Midsection, ADCP, Volumetric, Weir/Flume, Estimated Spin tests Sensor inspections and readings Bubble gages Wire-weight gages CSGs Others Control inspection Air and water temperature (environmental measurements) Gage-height of zero flow inspection High water marks Stilling well inspection

7 Site specific information in SWAMI
There are various scripts that are run that import WSC and site specific information from ADAPS and SiteVisit into SWAMI ADAPS All active surface water sites Ratings and shifts SiteVisit Sensors that are configured at a particular site Velocity meters Past measurements made at site

8 SWAMI – Loading WRII File
Begin a site inspection.

9 Export measurement Perform ADCP discharge measurement via WinRiver II. Assure all applicable fields in the discharge measurement wizard are filled out. When measurement is processed, export it as HYDROML File – Export as HydroML Move the exported .xml file to a SWAMI accessible folder Fields such as water temperature, stage

10 SWAMI – Loading WRII File
Note here the adjustment of the SV start date and time to coincide with the Q measurement

11 SWAMI – Loading WRII File
If the ADCP that was used for the measurement has not been imported, ADCP will be blank and needs to be filled out. Put generic with frequency

12 Measurement classification
QM method is what method was used to make the discharge measurement. Other examples besides ADCP are mid-section (flowtracker), and volumetric. QM type can be thought of as the deployment, in fact the name will be changed in 4.10.

13 Measurement classification – section by section measurement
Section by section (this measurement was not directly imported.) Notice the velocity method is ADCP, meaning an ADCP was used to get the integrated velocity profiles, but the discharge method is not ADCP as it was with the cableway measurement.

14 SWAMI – Loading WRII File

15 SWAMI – Ratings Lookup Ratings lookup feature available in the discharge form both the channels form and the measurement adjustment form off of the discharge summary form Plot rating button (examples on next slide)

16 SWAMI – Rating/Meas Plot
Current measurement in red Unshifted rating in green (not usually very visible) and shifted rating in black Previous measurements (up to 5) in blue Clicking on data point will display measurement info Clicking/dragging on graph will display GH and rating discharge at bottom

17 SWAMI – Loading WRII File
The ‘Start’ and ‘End’ fields represent the start and end times of the entire discharge measurement. By selecting the blue ‘Start’ and ‘End’ field labels SWAMI will attempt to extract the start and end times based on any time stamp information within the discharge measurement data portion of the site visit Talk about autosequence Click done here and you will be prompted to save the site inspection.

20 SWAMI information to SiteVisit
The saved HydroML file from SWAMI (affectionately called the “blob”) contains all the information from the site inspection When the HydroML file is imported into SiteVisit, this file is archived. It can be accessed and read in SiteVisit but cannot be modified A future SiteVisit enhancement will include looking at the blob with style sheets within SiteVisit All the information from SWAMI does not necessarily have a place in the SiteVisit database structure Database changes are slow to be made. SWAMI changes do not have to wait for database changes Database may not be able to handle the size of some of the fields (for example the ADCP self-test and compass calibration) Not all the information needs to stored in a relational database. The information is stored and archived in the “blob” and is better accessed with style sheets.

21 Loading SWAMI files Move saved site inspection HydroML file from SWAMI to SiteVisit loader directory on NWIS Sun Move directly to /usr/opt/nwis/data/SiteVisitDepot/db01/hydroml-files Move from any directory using “submitsvfr” command If SWAMI file contains valid address will get confirmation of loading and/or errors Check loader log file for details

22 Loader log file Three types of messages
Info – generally just provide status Warning – generally not a problem Failure – something did not load!

24 SWAMI to SiteVisit

25 SWAMI to SiteVist (con’t)

26 SiteVisit/SWAMI 4.10 SiteVisit/SWAMI 4.10 will be released this summer with the regularly scheduled NWIS release “Measurement type” (4.9) will be called “Deployment Method” Stationary boat and Manned moving boat (4.9) are being combined into just "manned boat". You will be able to tell whether it was stationary or moving based on the Q method (midsection or ADCP) Manned boat

27 SiteVisit4.10 Velocity meters (all, not just ADCP) sorted by office
“Velocity Meter Suspension” in ADCP measurement

28 SWAMI 4.10 Better style sheets
Ability to read WRII mmt file directly so no need to export to HydroML Native laptop version (SWAMI_PC) so no need to use the emulator (much, much faster) Ability to load flowtracker measurements

29 Issues Cannot directly import section by section measurements
Cannot import two ADCP measurements (check measurement) in the same SWAMI session Create two site inspections. Assure that the first inspection start and end times encompass both measurements. They will be merged together in SiteVisit

30 Other Issues Paper front sheets vs. SWAMI Archival WSC QA plan
Auto-sequencing Missing data Wind direction Salinity Indication if the time on the ADCP was synched with the watch time Indication if there was moving bed Adjustment type field of moving bed Text fields to enter “Boat/Motor Used” and “GPS Used” Archival All the pertinent information must be archived WSC QA plan Document, document, document Clarification on policy overall OSW is working through issues in a paperless world and is not ready to issue guidance
