Why are groups split up by file in inDEED when they are not in the specimen authoring tool? Can this be avoided?
In the Specimen Authoring Tool for inDEED, a group can contain sensors from multiple data files and these appear together in the tree structure and only one thumbnail for the group image appears in the top right of the session. However, when opening the inDEED file with inDEED instead of the Authoring Tool, the sensors are sorted first by the .csv file in which the sensor data is listed, then by group, causing the sensors for one group to be split up into different locations. Additionally, a separate thumbnail is made for occurrence of the group within the tree structure.
What is the reason for the difference in the presentation of the sensor information between the Authoring Tool and inDEED? Is there some way to turn off the sorting by .csv file in inDEED?
I recognize that having all sensors in one .csv file is certainly an option, however, it makes the data outside of inDEED less manageable. Having separate files as many researchers likely would prefer and an additional one with all data together for the sake of inDEED has the potential to confuse and doesn’t seem like a reasonable use of space within the project warehouse.
