data.legacy.stripchart locates and converts data from the old stripchart transcriptions into CPD2 style data. It does not distinguish between raw and clean type data, but returns the same for both.

data.legacy.stripchart is normally called as part of data.legacy.get's lookup procedure, instead of directly.

Command Line Usage

data.legacy.stripchart station records start end


start and end

The time specifiers for the data to be retrieved. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all data contained within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


The cpd2 record type to be retrieved. For example: 'S11a'. Case sensitive. Multiple record types may be separated by ”,”, ”;” or ”:”. The results will be interwoven in time. Note that this is a single argument and that spaces are not allowed.

Only the records S11a, N61a, and wx cause any data to be generated, all others are ignored.

Example Usage

data.legacy.stripchart brw S11a 1975:10 1975:12
