14 DecOutsource Data Processing
Data Plus Value, Data Processing consists of modular, menu-driven routines to convert, edit, process, and plot oceanographic data acquired with Data Plus Value instruments. Data Plus Value, Data Processing was developed by oceanographers, for oceanographers, incorporating input from years of teamwork and discussion with customers around the world and applying primary principles of oceanography to data analysis. Each module was designed to perform the necessary data manipulation based on our understanding of the real oceanographic features involved, and with sound physical reasons for applying specific corrections to individual types of errors. The software is continuously refined to reflect the latest oceanographic research, as well as to incorporate new auxiliary sensors that can interface.
Data Processing modules fall into five categories:
- Raw data conversion
- Data processing
- File manipulation
- Data plotting
- Seawater calculator
