More information on images here.
- SAMPLE NUMBER
- Must correlate to existing sample in the database. (Upload help)
- FILE (or PATH)
- The complete filename of the image as it appears in the zipped folder, including a .xxx extension indicating the file format (e.g. samp1_polish_scan.jpg). Acceptable image formats are: .jpg , .gif , .tif , and .png. Path notation may be used for subdirectories, using slashes between each subdirectory (e.g.: zipfolder/08-1xraymaps/08-1Femap.jpg)
- IMAGE TYPE
- Must be from list of acceptable image types. Note that abbreviations may be used for certain image types.
- ELEMENT -required x-ray maps
- The element or species that was measured to create an x-ray map.
- Must either (1) correlate to existing subsample of the given sample number, or (2) if a subsample has not yet been created, you may create one with an appropriate name here, as long as you provide the subsample type (see below).
- SUBSAMPLE TYPE – required to create subsamples at bulk upload
- In order to create a subsample during bulk upload of images, you must specify a type for the new subsample. Subsample types accepted: Thin section, Polished thin section, Rock Chip, or Mineral separate. Subsample type only needs to be specified for the first chemical analysis for a particular subsample in a list. For example, if you have a thin section scan of a new polished thin section that you want to upload, you only need to enter “polished thin section” in the subsample type column for the first (topmost) analysis.
- Full width of image measured along the actual sample in millimeters. For example, a horizontal scan of a full standard thin section should have a scale of ~46 mm.
- The person who collected the image, as this may not be the sample owner. Preferred format: Lastname, First initial.
- DWELL TIME
- Value in milliseconds for x-ray maps.
- Value in nanoAmps for x-ray maps.
- Value in kilovolts for x-ray maps.
- There may be any number of comment columns. You can input any type of description of the analytical strategy.
