Automated Data Analysis Plotting Toolset


Combined ADAPT Pics


The Automated Data Analysis Plotting Toolset (ADAPT) enables users to manage and analyze Xact-measured metals in near-real time through a number of relevant graphical tools. ADAPT produces research-quality graphics to provide a better understanding of the metal emissions influencing the monitoring site. Metal concentrations are analyzed in multiple forms to deliver unique insight on the temporal and variability trends. The software program also incorporates meteorologcical data to automatically estimate direcitonality of the peak metal concentrations observed at the monitoring site. This toolset will equip the Xact user with a better understanding of the metals data to make decisions towards managing metal emissions in the air shed.


ADAPT produces a variety of graphics to examine Xact-measured metals data collected over time and displays them through an intuitive user interface on the instrument. These plots allow the user to examine the metals contribution to each sample in addition to the concentration trends over time. The graphics are designed to track the high metals concentration events and capture the variability resulting from source emission patterns. Wind regression and other regression graphics included in the ADAPT provide and estimate of the directionality of peak metal concentrations.
