With the deterioration of water pollution, monitoring of water environment is becoming more and more urgent.
However, there is no professional water environmental monitoring system in China. To overcome these problems, we
have developed a Surface water environmental monitoring System (WATERS for short) by VISUAL C++6.0 IDE.
WATERS is designed for the four kinds of remote sensing data of HJ-1 satellites, which are multi-spectral camera, ultraspectral
imager, infrared camera, and SAR. Besides, WATERS can also support other satellite remote sensing data. We
use some simulated HJ-1 satellites remote sensing data, as well as remote sensing data of similar satellite sensors, to test
the operation of WATERS. The operation results by these remote sensing data show that WATERS works well, and both
the efficiency and the precision of water quality monitoring are high.
