How to Request a Data Report
Tags typically transmit for about 2 weeks, though they may transmit for up to a month before the battery is depleted. Once a tag has finished transmitting and all of the Argos data have been retrieved, contact us to have your raw data processed into a readable format.
To request a data report, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information for each tag for which you require data processing:
- Tag ID number
- DS and DIAG Argos data files (including predeployment test data)*
- Tag deployment date and location (latitude/longitude)
Turn-around times for reports can vary based on the number of datasets in need of processing. Generally, data reports are sent to the user within two weeks of the request.
