Time-Stamping of Data
Posted: Sat 25 May 2019 15:16
The TinyTag data files are available in two formats - a raw data format (*.JF) that is read using the TinyTag software, and an export file in standard CSV format. It has been pointed out that there is a time discrepancy between the two. TinyTag says...
We also asked TinyTag about a "time slip", where the sampling interval suddenly seems to jump. They said...There will be a discrepancy between the .jf files and the .csv files at this time of year because the latter always show times in GMT and the .jf files will display data in Tinytag Explorer according to your Windows time/date settings (which will currently be set for BST so they should be an hour ahead of the .csv file data).
The jumps in the time have been caused by the logger's clocks being synchronised with the system's clock. If you open [a data file] and go to View and Audit, you will see that there are time adjusts there that match up with the data you [are querying].
