PALMS Data Flow



DataFlow_diagram_8-26-2011.jpg

PALMS consists of 3 subsystems:
  • Data Import and Storage (yellow)
  • Processing and Analysis (green)
  • Visualization and Export (blue)
These systems are access via the PALMS web application (red).

Using the PALMS web application, data from devices (GPS, accelerometer, heart rate monitors, etc) is uploaded, parsed and stored. Subject data (age, weight, etc) is also entered and stored. Subject and observations datasets are processed and merged by calculations to create result sets. Result sets can be exported as CSV or KML files. They can also be used as input to other calculations.
