Measured data text file (*.csv)

Measured data text file contains the positions of measured data and the measured values (scalar values and vector values). List 7 shows an example of measured data text file.

Measured data text file must have a header line. The header line defines the data contained in each column. The header line has to stick to the following rules:

  • First column must be “X” (the x-coordinate of the measured point), and the second column must be “Y” (the y-coordinate of the measured point). The following column names are arbitrary.
  • Columns names must consist of only alphabets and numbers.
  • When there are column names that end with “X” and “Y” (for example, “VecX”, “VecY”), those columns are regarded as X component and Y component of a vector value.

On the second line and the following lines, the coordinates of measured points and measured data are stored. The values have to be real numbers.
