Tool kit helps digitize tide gauge records



The Numerisation des Niveaux d'Eau (NUNIEAU) is an integrated and automated MATLAB computer program tool kit for digitizing, transforming, and validating paper records of sea level variations, called marigrams (Figure 1a), that can cut in half the time required to digitize paper records.

This tool kit developed in 2004 by F. Pons is currently obtainable by request from the developer, but will be available online on the IMPLIT (Impact des evenements extremes sur les hydro-systèmes du litoral méditerranéen français) Web site in early 2006.
