Correct data with consistent drift using the ‘correct drift’
The ‘Correct Drift’ function is for correcting data with a consistent drift away from a calibration point. This is common for automatically collected environmental sensor data.
Step 1: Select the data from the left file tree or from “files” tab which needs to be manipulated.
Step 2: Once you select the file, it will be opened in the “Data Wrangler”.
Step 3: Click on the “Correct data drift” and a popup will appear.
Step 4: After you selected desired data, the drift correction will apply a linear correction for each cell. The drift correction can only be applied to time series data.
Step 5: The default “Result” is to overwrite the original file with the updated file.
Select what you want to save as your output file from the “output” drop down menu.
If you want to keep the original file along with your updated file then, click on “Keep all columns” or “only keep selected columns” under “create new file”. Click “run”. The new file will be saved in the same folder as original file.
