The map of colour observations
On the right side of the screen you see recent measurements by all users. On the left side of the map you can click on the most active users and see their measurements.

By clicking on one of the coloured circles on the map a pop-up window opens with all measurements close to the one you clicked on. If there is only one measurement, detailed information about the measurement will follow showing the Forel Ule value, coordinates and device the photo was taken with.

Filtering observations
You may also be interested in a selection of observations. EyeonWater has several options to filter measurements.
Above the map you have 3 options: Nearby, global and my measurements. Click on my measurements to see all observations connected to your device. The option “nearby” will show you all observations in proximity to you whereas global will show all observations around the world.
In addition, measurements can be filtered on date. On the bottom left you can click on “last 6 months X” to change the time. When clicking on “Older than one year” you will see all measurements present in the database older than one year; either collected with the real Forel-Ule scale or using the App.
