#190269 - How incredibly stupid!
Responding to: Raghunathan's previous message

... strain gages that capture these and finally a single waveform is derived ... we don't have access to the waveform in any kind of file form. It is given as a print out

In the 21st century, that's really inexcusible! What idiot throws the original data away, and retains only a hard-copy printout?!?!

Anyhow, I guess you're stuck with it - for now at least.

I am not sure if there any way to create a look up table by scanning the sheet ?

If you scan it to a pure bitmap file, I'd have thought it shouldn't be too hard to get x,y coordinates for the plot points...?

Be sure to point out to your superiors that this would be entirely unnecessary if the source data were available. And bill accordingly!
