It is now possible to easily edit data that either you have imported to SimCLIM 4.0 for Desktop or have added via a site data package obtained from CLIMsystems or another SimCLIM 4.0 for Desktop user.


This feature can be very important as often site data that is obtained from various sources can include errors. This is more common than you might think and therefore we advise you check all site data you apply in your project carefully for what may appear to be anomalous data. You can query data for errors by using display tools in the site data browser. You can identify outliers and the date that they refer to and then note them and edit them to corect values.


To edit data open the Site Data Manager and select a viewing file be it hourly, daily or monthly etc.



Click on a data variable, for example, precipitation. Then click on .



You can then choose the date of the data cell you wish to change/edit.


Then change it in the value window and by entering the number you wish and clicking on set. Be sure to click on save before exiting the dialogie box to be sure the change is registered in the file.



You can also filter your data and transform a number of values collectively.



Click on the date filter to choose a month:



And then select the Value filter:



Finally select the manner you wish to transform the data either by a set value or by multiplying, dividing, adding or subtracting from the data:



Again be sure to save the data after transforming it.
