Organize raw files
Processed Folder and Subdirectories

  1. Open drive or SD card with data on computer. These files should be named with timestamps. Organize raw files in a project folder with the same naming format used in the “NABat New Project Form” DOCX (“FBB_[YYYY]_[CNTY]_ [Company]_[Name-of-Project]_[IPaC# if assigned and known]”). Individual deployments (i.e., single site, single detector, for a full passive recording period) should be in individual folders.

  2. Place these raw data folders in a “Raw” folder, then create a “Processed” folder in your project folder (Figure 1A).

  3. In the “Processed” folder, replicate the raw data subdirectories with empty folders of the same names (Figure 1B).

Figure 1. Example of subdirectories within a project folder. A) Within the “Raw” folder is a folder for every individual deployment that contains the appropriate raw data (one site, one detector, one full deployment period). B) The user sets up a “Processed” folder in the project folder and replicates the subdirectories of the raw data folders with empty folders of the same names.
