Report Observation Points in Using SMS Posted October 19, 2016 From http://xmswiki.com/wiki/SMS:Observations_Workflow "Observation points are used to verify the numerical analysis with measured field data such as water surface elevation or velocity data. They are also be used to see how computed values change with time at a particular location. Observation arcs are used to view the results at a cross section or along the river profile." Question: Does the observed/calibration/measured data provided at each observation point influence the initial numerical analysis? Question: Can an observation point be used to monitor numerical analysis? This implies the creation of observation point without "observation/measured data"
