Keep track of your local river with Fluvium! Fluvium provides a simple way to monitor the stream flow, gage height, surface temperature, and other characteristics of rivers and streams in the US. Using data collected by the US Geological Survey (USGS) from thousands of sites around the country, Fluvium provides a close to real-time view of current conditions. To use the app, you select a river (either by state, proximity to your current location, or from a map) and a parameter you’d like to display (such as stream flow). Fluvium creates a tile for the selected river and parameter (like Windows 8 tiles), and lets you group similar ones together. Each tile shows a bar chart of the last two weeks of stream flow (or other selected parameter), as well as the current trend over the last four hours.More

Added Bing Maps so that you can now select sites from a map. Also, clicking on a site tile will display a map of the site location. Fixed minor bugs, and improved efficiency of app (fewer calls to USGS web site, which means better performance).
