Latest Upgrade

WADER is constantly being enhanced to improve performance, features and the user experience. The list below highlights some of the significant updates which have been incorporated into the latest version of WADER and provided to customers as part of their AUP. This is not an exhaustive list but gives an indication as to what can be expected in future versions.

All updates are explained in an Update Log which is provided as part of the User Manual.

Subsurface Charts

Our new global subsurface charts allow the user to analyse the changes in temperature, salinity and sound speed at set intervals from depths of 5m to 1000m.

WADER V8.2 now provides the option to display an Intensity Distribution Graph relative to the entire field (all ranges and depths).

New Intensity Distribution Graph

The maximum zoom factor for WADER has been increased. Consequently, the lat/long grid will now show degrees, minutes and seconds.
