Economical automated data collection storage and transfer

Economical automated data collection storage and transfer

Crop Science 26(4): 833-834

Though interfacing measuring devices to microcomputers increases efficiency of data collection and reduces numbers of transcription errors, the economics of implementation have been a deterrant to many potential users. Weighing is one of the most frequent measurements employed in evaluating biological entities. A low cost system was developed employing a portable microcomputer interfaced to an electronic balance. Software was written for the microcomputer to facilitate data collection from the balance and independently for field-note recording. Procedures were developed to upload data from the portable microcomputer to a larger system for processing. Considerable time savings in recording data and in data entry for analysis is realized. Additionally, virtual avoidance of transcription errors and flexibility (i.e., word processing, high-level language programmable, telecommunication, and terminal emulation) in lab and remote field situations makes this system an asset to researchers. Programs were written to convert data files and merge them with other data or field book files. These programs are available from the senior author upon request.
