This page contains a "ready-to-use" example data file as well as an actual results package showing the types of plots COPEPODITE can create from this data file.   (Please refer to the COPEPODITE User's Guide for additional information about the layout and format decisions used in this example file.)

The "Plymouth L4" data provided in this example are publicly available from the Plymouth Marine Laboratory / Western Channel Observatory web site (   If you use these data for anything beyond this demo (i.e., research), please grab a fresh copy of the data and properly cite the appropriate investigators noted in the PML/WCO web site.   (The provided example data are not the most recent or updated content available from PML/WCO.)

The Plymouth L4 example data below were compiled from multiple individual original data files (found on the PML/WCO web site) and then prepared into a single COPEPODITE readable format data file.   This single file was then run through the COPEPODITE system to create the example results also available in the links below.

The results in this example were generated using the "Individual Station" Geographic Mode with latitude +50.2500 (North) and longitude -4.2167 (West).

All of the currently available COPEPODITE plotting modules (as of December 2011) were selected for this example.

You are encouraged to look at the format and structure of the Plymouth L4 example data file and then look through the various plots in the COPEPODITE Results Example.   You may also want to download the example data file to your own computer and then try submitting them to COPEPODITE with your own selection of options (i.e., try a geographic box, turn on/off certain plotting options).
