Interactive Data Analysis. Development of an Interactive Data Manipulation System.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
Large amounts of data collected during experiments or produced as outputs of programs that simulate systems, usually need further treatment in order to complete the research task. One step of the data analysis process is the manipulation of the data. The data, even when stored in a computer, can be considered as inert if it cannot be manipulated. Manipulation may be considered any appropriate arrangement or transformation of a logical data matrix composed by the data. The inert data matrix is activated and becomes an Active Matrix by the developed system IDAMAN Interactive Data Manager. It is expected that this system, based on the idea of Dr. Daniel Guinier, fulfills the demands for such manipulations. Compared to existing similar alternative systems, this system possesses two particular merits No specific language is required and the separation of data manipulation task from acquisition and future calculus grants to the system a high power of expandability. Additional keywords theses, Fortran, data processing, subroutines, sorting, transformationsmathematics, instructions.
