Data Analysis Frequently Asked Questions



To get to the RAP data analysis start the RAP interface and go to File->Analyse Archived Data and select the appropriate archive file from the list. FYI: the file selection widget displays the contents of the RAP_DATA_DIR environmental variable; if you wish to analyse data from an external source simply put it in this directory. A subsequent widget will allow the user to refine the data analysed to according to the report type, sensor of origin, and the data display. Data will be grouped according to range/altitude/azimith bands for the selected source and epock and displayed both graphically and tabularly. Both outputs may be stored to files or printed for reference.

The data from the file selected will not contaminate any data displayed to the maps or in the tracker, so it is safe to run the RAP data analysis module when running a live display ot replaying archived data.
