Smooth Data

The Smooth Data command is used in cases where the acquired data is 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. This opens the Smooth Data window.
  3. Select the Smoothing Filter Type, specify the conditions for that filter, then click the OK button. The data are smoothed.

One side-effect of smoothing the data is that it in essence replaces the original data in the document. To retrieve the original data, you must reload it from the original .DTA file.
