Sessions, Sharing and Downloads | Website Update
Now you can save and share your analysis as sessions or download your data as a spreadsheet.
The data viewer on PhotosynQ is the tool to analyze your collected data. You can filter the data set and create sub-sets (Series), you can Plot parameters in various ways, view the data on a map based of the geo-location attached to each measurement, do simple statistics, or dive into every value using the spreadsheet. We are introducing a few new functions, we hope you will give you a better experience.
Now you can save your results as sessions when analyzing the data. Every session will save your current dashboard, plot, map, filter settings/series and thresholds. They are a great way of saving interesting observations, compare different filters, thresholds, without having to repeat all the steps to get there.
Sharing a Session
When you save a session, you will notice a checkbox labeled shareable, making the session available to others when checked. After you saved your session, just click on the copy button in the list of available sessions, to save the link to your clipboard. Use the link, to share your findings with collaborators, in the forums or for presenting them in the Project results section. You can also un-share the session at any time. The link will still be pointing to the Project’s data, but your session is no longer available. In case you make up your mind, just re-share it and the link works again.
When you have been been analyzing your data, you might have noticed, that the filters and thresholds you were applying got saved and re-applied the next time you opened the dataset. This was only saved locally, so opening your project on a different computer, would mean you have to start all over again. Now it gets saved to the cloud, so you can continue working where you have left off, even when you are using different computer.
We developed the Data Viewer so you can analyze the measurements you have collected for a project, online. But we do understand, that downloading the data and using it in spreadsheets like Excel, Origin or others can be necessary. To this point, we have offered libraries for Python and R to get data from PhotosynQ into an easy to use format to work with. Now we also offer a download* of the data in a spreadsheet (xlsx) or in the JSON format right from the project page.
Yet, we strongly recommend you view your data using the data viewer, since there you can flag measurements that were not taken correctly, you can look at raw traces, etc. That way you can ensure the best data quality, when it comes to your final analysis.
*The downloads are only available for the project lead and project collaborators
Statistics – Summary
The data viewer is offering simple statistic functions as well as a summery for a selected parameter. The histogram in the summary has been extended and is showing now the normal distribution for the sample as well.
Please be aware, that all functions are currently at a beta stadium, so you might experience some issues and the functionality might be different in the final version.
