Export RAW Tables

The exportation of data is the final step in an analysis workflow. The analysis is performed and the result must to be exported to an additional data format for presentation or visualisation. Or, Sympathy for Data has been used for data management, where data from different source has been gathered and merged into a joint structure that can be exported to different data format.

There exists exportation from the following internal data types:

The exportation nodes are all based on the use of plugins, the same structure as the importation nodes. Each supported data format has its own plugin, and may also have a specific GUI settings.

At the moment, exportation of Tables are supported to following data formats:
  • CSV
  • HDF5
  • SQL
  • SQLite
  • XLS
  • XLSX

In the separate node, Export RAW Tables, the internal structure of Tables are exported into a single file, where data format is connected to Sympathy with the extension .sydata.

The exportation nodes can also be used for storing partial results on disk. The stored data can be reimplemented further ahead in the workflow by connecting the outgoing datasources to an importation node.

If the input Table(s) has a plot attribute (as created by e.g., Plot Tables) it can be exported to a separate file by selecting one of the extensions in the output section.
