DIADvisor Base Station is a Microsoft Windows®-based application that collects, stores, analyzes and displays real-time hydro-meteorological and environmental data. The DIADvisor data collection base station receives ALERT formatted data via one or more serial ports on a local PC. DIADvisor real-time hydrologic monitoring software was formerly known as "StormWatch".

  • Color Map support
  • Windows 7 support

Color Map Support 

Color maps can be used in DIADvisor 3.0. The DIADvisor graphics engine has been re-designed to not require a black-background map in order to display the Rain Display overlays. Maps can be generated in JPEG or Bitmap formats using a wide variety of software, ranging from GIS packages to internet sources.


Custom Data Displays

DIADvisor 3.0 supports custom data displays. Using the DIADvisor “Define Map” user-interface, the following details can be customized:

  • Data value display – color, bold, borders, background color
  • Site icon colors
  • Timed-out site icon color
  • Out-of-service site icon color
  • Choice of two rain scale color schemes
  • Rainfall Overlay transparency level

These settings can be previewed and saved as the default map configuration. Saved configurations can then be applied to other maps with a click of a button.
