C FINS

A simple software module enables C-FINS™ and ArcGIS® to work together allowing for real-time mapping of fluorescence, temperature, depth, and turbidity. The ability to capture and integrate these data reliably using the C-FINS™ package is a powerful tool for researchers.

FEATURES

Features:

  • Simplifies Data Mapping using a GPS-integrated C3™ Submersible Fluorometer
  • Provides real-time data collection and integration
  • Works with industry-standard ArcGIS® 10.0 or 10.1 software
  • Simple upgrade for existing C3™ Submersible Fluorometers
  • Free software add-in available

Benefits:

  • Optical Options (choose up to 3 per unit)
  • Blue-Green Algae (Cyanobacteria) – Phycocyanin (Freshwater), Phycoerythrin (Marine)
  • CDOM/FDOM
  • Chlorophyll In Vivo – Blue excitation, Red excitation
  • Fluorescent Dye Tracing – Fluorescein, PTSA, Rhodamine WT
  • Hydrocarbons – Crude Oil, Refined Fuels
  • Turbidity
  • Wastewater Monitoring – Optical Brighteners, Tryptophan
  • Custom optics
