  • Title: 4.6 Should I choose observations or messages?
    Descriptive info: The procedures for ”r;Observation processing” and ”r;Message processing” are completely independent.. Therefore, user results can be distributed simultaneously as messages and observations.. 4.. 6.. 1 Observation processing.. Observations are useful in the following cases:.. For easy data interpretation.. The Observation format delivers the measurements recorded by a platform in a clear, reliable and non-redundant manner, making it the easiest way to interpret data.. Observation data sets are immediately useable.. They do not require additional processing to track the evolution of sensitive parameters, for example, the changes in an atmospheric pressure sensor.. For easy data sharing.. Observation data sets are completely processed and validated.. They can easily be shared with your partners worldwide via ArgosShare.. The Observation format is also the data format that is used for data dissemination on the WMO’s Global Telecommunication System (GTS).. For setting up a monitoring system.. The processing and quality-controls performed on observation data sets makes it ideal for setting off alarms with ArgosMonitor and, thus makes it easy to identify certain  ...   It is thus a useful format for manufacturers and developers who wish to optimize the transmission process in their platforms, analyse performance, or perform maintenance operations.. For ensuring compatibility with your existing software.. Since the only format used for data distribution by CLS until May 2008 was Message format, most manufacturer and user decoding software are programmed to recognize these formats.. Until they are updated, Message format is the only way to guarantee compatibility with pre-existing software programs.. For processing complex formats that change over time.. Even if CLS is continually developing new automatic processing tools, certain manufacturer formats are too complex to be automatically decoded as observations.. This is the case for platforms that are programmed to change at pre-defined dates (certain animal application platforms, for example).. For keeping a raw data archive.. If you are building a data archive, it can be advantageous to store your data in Message format.. That way, you can apply updated processing techniques later on, or easily identify a processing error..
