Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Time series data for ambient atmospheric CO₂ levels in a typical academic office.
The CSV file is in UNIX format, with lines terminated with ASCII LF (0xA) character.
There are two columns per record:
the DATE is given in ISO 8601 format. Generally there are 6 decimal figures in the "seconds" place, giving precision down the microsend level, though the actual timing accuracy is only like to be around a few milliseconds.
The CO2 level is given in PPM.
The sensor is a calibrated NDIR sensor bought Commercially Off The Shelf from co2meter.com. More details here: https://www.co2meter.com/blogs/news/6010192-how-does-an-ndir-co2-sensor-work
The data is collected using custom Python scripts on a spare laptop.
