High spatial resolution experiments in the near field of a trailing vortex using a SPIV technique have been carried out. A particular attention on the measurement technique is presented highlighting the importance of the laser pulses delay between the two frames in a double-frame/single-pulse method and of the images processing characteristics in the evaluation of velocity profiles and turbulence quantities. The number of samples needed for the statistical onvergence of the mean flow and the turbulent quantities has also been found. A study on the vortex aperiodicity correction method has revealed how the instantaneous vector fields centering affects the velocity profiles across the vortex. The importance in the choice of the vortex quantity which is used for the vortex centre detection is presented.
