The parameters included for each procedure are listed on the procedure page. Data does not need to be recorded for all the parameters, only for those marked as ‘Required for Upload’. Different types of parameters cover a range of data to be collected, including simple values, media and metadata. This and other information, such as data type and derivation formulas, is available for each parameter on IMPReSS.
Metadata parameters are used to record the information regarding the experimental conditions. Some of these parameters can influence the measurements leading to incomparable data sets. These metadata parameters are marked as ‘Required for Data Analysis’. This means that when the data is being observed and analysed it is grouped based on this information.
