File Extension: CSV
Many types of CSV files are supported, even if they don’t exactly match the format of one of the vendors listed on the data sources overview page. Please read the format specification below if you would like to output your data in a way that Njord Analytics can understand.
It is crucial that accurate timestamp information is contained in the CSV file. The timestamp column could be named:
SecondsSince1970, or similar. The following formats are supported for timestamp columns:
Lon columns are mandatory (except in auxiliary files, such as for wind data), and should be formatted as decimal degrees (
For other common metrics, please match the standard names. You may include more columns than that, of course.
To automatically find starts, and the start line, you may include the following columns:
TimeToGun(in seconds): to indicate start times.
Stbdlon(all in decimal degrees
ddd.dddddd): to indicate the start line position. It is sufficient if these values appear in at least one row in the CSV file before the start (e.g. when the line is pinged). You don’t need to fill the entire file.
