Matrix Data Export

All spatially distributed models in AirWare produce their output as MatrixObjects.

These matrices can be exported in CSV format using the export button at the details model results display page.

The exported CSV file starts with (optional: see the tick box: "Attach header to the export file") 18 Metadata fields (lines of header information) with the META data describing the exported matrix: this starts with a descriptive text block the user can fill with any descriptive text. This is followed by the data ( comma separated floats ) for each grid cell.

For each time step the matrix is given in the following format (time steps are separated by an empty line):

  • Data start at the north-west corner of the domain.
  • Each line corresponds to a row of the matrix containing values ordered from west to east:
    • The first value corresponds to the north-west corner of the domain,
    • The last value of the first line corresponds to the north-east corner.
    • The first value of the last line corresponds to south-west corner of the domain,
    • The last value of the last line corresponds to the south-east corner.
