This widget shows more than 300 Swiss federal gauging stations with their real time data, operated by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).
It displays the river or lake name with the current measure, unit, and date and time of measurement. The date is in the format DD.MM.YY.

The widget checks for new data every 15 minutes and reads the data directly from the FOEN webpage. All displayed data are provisional.


Usage

Clicking on a station name takes you to the FOEN site and opens that station's PDF. This PDF is available in German or French (depending on the station's location), showing a graph of the past 7 days.




Displayed graphs:

  1. Discharge (Meters per second) in blue

  2. River (or lake) level (Meters above sea level) in black   

  3. Temperature (Degrees Celsius) in red


Clicking on the Widget Title "Swiss Lakes and Rivers" takes you to the original data on the FOEN website.
