There are two facets to collecting, recording, and processing the data that our flowmeters output (besides the pencil-and-paper method). The first component, Monitoring Hardware, makes flowmeter measurements accessible via conversion to a useful electronic format. The second component, Monitoring Software, is a receptacle for acquired data and a means to manipulate and analyze it as you desire.
