Wave is a tool for displaying, analyzing and importing and exporting time series.
- WEL (BlueM, GISMO, TALSIM, Hystem-Extran)
- REG (SMUSI and Hystem-Extran)
- OUT (SWMM binary output files)
- TXT (SWMM routing interface files)
- UVF (Universelles Variables Format)
- HYDRO_AS-2D result files
- BIN (SYDRO binary format)
- ZRXP (ZXRP format)
- and generic text files (e.g. CSV)
Use a Wave project file (
*.wvp) to quickly import multiple series from multiple files at once.
Drag&Drop files onto Wave to import them quickly.
It is also possible to manually input time series, or use copy & paste from Excel.
Display time series in a highly customizable diagram (provided by TeeChart)
- Overview: An overview chart shows you the full extent of the time series and the period currently displayed in the main diagram.
- Axes: When importing time series, series are automatically assigned to different axes depending on their unit.
- Zoom & pan: Use the mouse to zoom or pan.
- Navigation bar: Use the navigation bar to set a custom display period and to navigate by a fixed time period.
- Quickly switch time series on and off using the check boxes in the legend.
Save & Export
Save diagrams to the native TeeChart format (TEN-File) to preserve all data and formatting.
Export diagrams as image files (PNG, JPG, BMP)
Export time series to the following formats:
Edit & Analyze
- Cut time series to a specified time perios or to another series' extent
- Remove error values from a time series
- Merge multiple time series into one while respecting priorities
- Monthly statistics
- Double mass curve
- Goodness of fit (volume error, sum of squares error, Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency, etc.)
- Comparison: Plot two time series against each other and compute a linear regression line
- Annual statistics: Compute various statistical parameters (min, max, average) of a time series
See the documentation.
Importing time series
- "NaN", "Infinity" and "-Infinity" in import files are recognized and accepted.
Unreadable values are converted to NaN.
Values of NaN or +-Infinity are removed before display in the chart and when performing analysis functions.
Wave can calculate and display the volume of a time series (e.g. for GoodnessOfFit analysis or in the properties window). The volume is usually calculated by simply computing the sum of all individual values of a time series (in this case it is equal to the "Sum" property). However, if a time series' unit ends with "/s" (e.g. "m³/s"), the volume is calculated by actually integrating the values over time.
Which method is used to calculate the volume is always written to the log.
