Helicorder image looks intense

I’ve been running a Raspberry Shake for a few weeks now and am starting to look at the data.

The Helicorder images look a little intense to me (certainly a lot stronger than the ones I see in the tutorials).

Is this normal?

Hi Lucy, there’s a setting called “Helicorder Scaling Value” in the Data settings that can be changed. So for example, the default is 0.5. If you choose 0.1, the program should scale the wave traces down so that they are more easily readable.

You can also use Swarm to view the waveforms interactively.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have questions.
