6.2. Use Quick Data Import

In many cases, numerical data are a list of depth-value pairs for a single property. Use the "Quick Data Import" function, you can import data files that can be easily edited or generated by external programs like spreadsheet or even raw text data files generated by multiple sensor core loggers. The "Quick Data Import" function will accept plain text files that follows the format described below.

The plain text file should be in tsv (Tab-Separated-Values) or csv (Comma-Separated-Values) formats (filename ended with .csv or .tsv). The first line of the file will describe the meaning of the values and its contents will also be used for data field labels. The rest of the file should be one depth with multiple values per line. And example .tsv plain text file might look like this (values separated by tabs):

MyDepth	Cr	Mg
m	mg	ion
0.1	0.1	0.4
0.2	0.3	3.2
0.3	0.5	-2.9
0.4	3.2	4.22
0.5	-2.1	-2.48
0.6	4.7	-1.90
0.7	-6.2	7.2
0.8	1.33	5.0
0.9	4.23	2.2
1.0	5.0	-1.0          
        

To use "Quick Data Import", select the menu item from the "File" menu. Corelyzer will popup a file selection dialog to select the text file in the format described above.
