Unlock hidden potential with WISKI’s Water Depth Profile.

Introducing a valuable but often overlooked feature of our WISKI system: the Water Depth Profile. While this feature is not brand new, its potential to transform water quality monitoring is something that many have yet to discover. In this article we will look at how this under-utilised feature can significantly enhance your water quality management efforts.

Understanding the Water Depth Profile.

At its core, the Water Depth Profile feature allows users to visualise water quality measurements obtained from vertical profilers installed in reservoirs, dams and other surface water bodies. These profilers are equipped with sensors capable of measuring various water quality parameters at different depths.

In simple terms, the system helps users see and understand information about the quality of water in lakes and similar bodies of water. It does this by collecting data from sensors which measure different depths in the water then displays how the water quality changes both with depth and over time through graphs.

The hidden power of visualisation.

The true beauty of the Water Depth Profile lies in its ability to transform complex data into easy-to-understand visuals:

Depth and time insights: Our system generates 2.5D plots, also known as time series depth profiles. These plots display measurements in both depth and time dimensions, providing a unique perspective on how water quality parameters change over time and at different depths in the water.

Streamlined data processing: WISKI’s Water Depth Profile efficiently handles large data sets. This capability allows users to process large amounts of data in one go, making it easier to identify anomalies or critical water quality situations.

User-friendly interface: We have designed the system with ease of use in mind, ensuring that experts and non-experts alike can interpret the data effortlessly. The graphical presentation makes complex information accessible to all.

Real-world impact: Why it matters

Let’s look at why the water depth profile is a feature worth exploring, even if it’s not entirely new:

  1. Efficient data handling: The system’s ability to efficiently process large data sets saves time and resources, allowing users to focus on proactive water quality management.
  2. Timely response: Rapid detection of problems leads to rapid action. When a problem is detected, users can respond quickly to investigate and mitigate the problem, protecting the environment and public health.
  3. Long-term sustainability: Careful monitoring of water quality contributes to the long-term health and sustainability of water resources, which are vital for ecosystems, human consumption, agriculture and industry.


In conclusion, the WISKI Water Depth Profile may not be a new invention, but its potential to improve water quality monitoring should not be underestimated. It empowers users to make informed decisions, ensures timely protection of water resources and supports the long-term well-being of our environment. With this tool in your toolkit, you can take your water quality management efforts to new heights.
