  • Hydrometric Chart Digitisation

    Hydrometric Chart Digitisation

    Mallon Technology is one of the only companies in the UK with the specialist expertise and project experience to undertake hydrometric chart digitisation.

    Hydrometric charts contain historical water level records stretching back centuries. Historically, water level data was collected using autographic water level recorders. This provides a continuous trace of water level on weekly charts using a float and counterweight system that moves a pen on a spindle via a pulley and gearing mechanism.

    Water level records are collected at a network of water level stations operated by local authorities throughout the country and provide an invaluable insight into how river levels have fluctuated over a large period of time.

    Hydrometric chart digitisation entails the use of digitising boards, which are the only means of ensuring the required accuracy level, to plot water level against time. The collected data can then be exploited using software for research, flood and disaster planning purposes.
