The AA. present the coupling of 2 techniques allowing to obtain spatial data of flow depth and surface velocity measurements for water depths ranging from a few millimetres to a few centimetres. The large scale particle image velocimetry (LSPIV) procedure was a robust method to obtain surface velocity measurements with a relatively low sensitivity to parameter changes. Comparison with measurements performed with hot film anemometer and salt velocity gauge showed that LSPIV surface velocities were representative of the flow. Water depths measured with the laser scanner were also in good agreement with single-point measurements performed with a dial indicator. Spatially-distributed flow rates could be computed by combining both presented techniques with a mean relative error less than 20%
