    @ensign – yup, it’s a nice video. But… creating a video like that automatically for every set of uploaded trajectory data is just a little bit more difficult than making a simple plot with time on the x axis.

    The WinRiverII software for the moving acoustic Doppler current profilers that we use to take discharge measurements has some nice visualizations for the boat tracks and the velocity profile. I think the “stick ship track” plot is a really nice way of cramming multi-dimensional data into a very simple single plot. But even though it’s “trajectory” data, the path of the ADCP is much simpler than what I’m guessing @osca is up to and MonitorMW still couldn’t handle it.
