Argus navigation data processed on the ship are bundled in a single zip file. This includes sampled, trimmed, and merged directories. These contain latitude, longitude, and depth re-sampled to 1 second intervals to provide a 3D navigation solution. The trimmed directory contain raw files trimmed to the dive interval. The sampled directory contains data simplified, filtered, and re-sampled with depth as negative down. The merged directory contains a trimmed and re-sampled 3D navigation solution with depth as positive down. Argus also has source data that is combined with data received for Hercules navigation in .HER and .NAV files. These files are archived with Hercules (DeviceID 23531) and will need to be downloaded separately.
