Spotter Data Parsing Script

Team Sofar

If you are interested in analyzing your SD card data, we share our internal open-source tool to assist you. The script will help associate your data with a human-readable timestamp as well as translate spectral data into bulk parameters.

Please note: The parsing script is not an actively supported tool, and we recommend customers to build their ingesting tools using the raw Spotter SD card data.

Computer requirements:

- For Mac you will need to have OS X 10.5 (or newer) and python 2.7 (or newer) installed.
- For Windows you will need to have Windows 7 (or newer).
- For Linux you will need to have python 2.7 (or newer) installed.
