Naming Procedures

Using good names for data files in VDV makes everything easier, files that belong together are grouped together and it is easy to understand what they contain.

Here is a sample of a four stage naming system that we recommend but this only works well if each category has a short name (long names can be turned into acronyms):

Company - Project - Station - Sensor

Depending on the projects and number of clients within the same system 1 - 4 stages may apply. In some cases for example Company - Project might be more than enough.
