Smooth Data

Smooth Data is used in cases where the acquired data are less than ideal. There are some cases where exterior noise enters the cell and causes the data to have some minor oscillations. The Smooth Data command offers two different types of smoothing algorithms:


  1. Make the trace you wish to smooth the Active trace. Do this by right-clicking on the trace and clicking Activate Trace.
  2. Select the Smooth Data command from the document menu. The Smooth Data window appears.
  3. Select the type of smoothing filter, and then specify the conditions for that filter. When you are satisfied, click the OK button. The data are smoothed. One side-effect of smoothing the data is that they—in essence—replace the original data in the document. To retrieve the original data, you must reload them from the original .DTA file.
