Adding LIF direct sensing data

SmartData users may directly upload laser induced fluorescence (LIF) direct sensing data. LIF probes make real time measurements of contaminant characteristics.

To add LIF direct sensing data to the project, click the Project Data icon on the toolbar across the top of the interface. Next, click the Upload New Data button and choose one of your files to upload.

 For LIF data, the file must be saved in the zip format by the GeoProbe software. Click the Upload button. You have now successfully uploaded your LIF data.




Now that you have uploaded your LIF data, you are able to view it on your map.  First, click the Site Model icon on the toolbar across the top of the interface to go back to the site model.

Expand the LIF data submenu in the left hand column of your screen.  In the Detectors submenu, you can choose between various LIF variables to be displayed on the map viewer.

Clicking on or hovering your cursor over a station marker will display tabular LIF data.  Adjusting the elevation of interest will display only LIF data pertinent to the elevation of interest.  



To view a graphic chart of a station's LIF data, click on the station of interest.  A Selected Sites (1) tab will appear at the bottom of the map viewer.  Click on this tab and a graphic chart of the LIF data will appear.  Users are also able to click on multiple stations and multiple station charts will appear below.

In the Value Scale submenu, select the Individual, Collective (selected), or Collective (all) option to turn on the chart visual representation of the LIF data.  In the Depth Scale submenu, select the Individual, Collective (selected), or Collective (all) option to turn on the chart visual representation of the LIF data.

Users can save these charts using the Save Screenshot button at the top of the interface (make sure to select only the chart).


If you would like to only display certain detectors throughout your entire project, you can do this in the Project Data tab.  Click the tab of your data type, click Edit Detectors/Stations, and then deselect the detectors you do not want displayed in your project.  Now click the Update Visible Detectors button and only your desired detectors will be displayed in your project.
