An effort was made to improve data records by compensating for the dynamic behavior of the data measuring and recording component or system. In the method developed, the fast Fourier transform algorithm is used to calculate the transfer function of the measuring component or system and then the transfer function is used to reconstruct the input data from the output of that component or system. Four sample problems were processed using this approach. In each case, this reconstruction process produced a record which was a much more accurate representation of the input than was the original output of the component.
