The R package **hyd1d** is designed to compute 1-dimensional water level information along the German Federal Waterways Elbe and Rhine.

**hyd1d** is available from CRAN. To install it run:

To install the latest development version from Github run:

The package **hyd1d** is build around the S4-class `WaterLevelDataFrame`

. To compute and visualize 1-dimensional water level information an object of class `WaterLevelDataFrame`

has to be initialized. Various functions included in **hyd1d** use these objects and compute water levels stored in the column `w`

.

```
# load the package
library(hyd1d)
# initialize a WaterLevelDataFrame
wldf <- WaterLevelDataFrame(river = "Elbe",
time = as.POSIXct("2016-12-21"),
station = seq(257, 262, 0.1))
# compute a water level
wldf <- waterLevel(wldf, TRUE)
# and plot it
plotShiny(wldf, TRUE, TRUE, TRUE, xlim = c(256.8, 262.2))
```
