locations.table files contain legacy information about measurement heights and sonic orientation.
# Note: each line which contains a hash sign (#) on the very beginning
# is considered to be a comment. Also blank lines are skipped.
# The columns to provide are:
# 1. beginning date (in non-american notation: dd.mm.yy)
# 2. beginning time (in 24 hours notation: hh:mm:ss)
# 3. ending date
# 4. ending time
# 5. time base: UTC, MEZ, MESZ, ADT or number of hours difference to
# UTC (this is local time minus UTC)
# 6. measuring height above ground (meters) or, if you measured
# measuring height above displacement height, then give this value
# here and set the vegetation height and displacement height to NA
# 7. vegetation height above ground (meters) or NA
# 8. displacement height (meters) or NA
# 9. wind direction offset (angle between geogr. north and sonic north)
# 10. number of analog channels; this must be the same number as in the
# header of the raw data file, if you do not want to end up
# having problems later somewhere.
# 11. and more: depending on the settings in column 10. Starting
# with column 11 the number of columns defined in 10 will
# read as time lags in number of raw records (so this value
# depends on the sampling rate!). Note: if you specify NU (not used)
# in the lag column(s), this is equivalent to an exclude statement
# in the calibration table when using the POLLUMET concept.
# The next column is the prefix of the dataset (or NA).
# The remaining columns are read in and concatenated to obtain
# a string describing this location.
# If you choose the USEARCSSCONCEPT (see calibration.h), convertall will also
# check whether the LOCATIONs match between the calibration table specified
# by DEFAULTCALIBTAB in convertall.h, since it could be unclear from the
# data filename, from which location the data are.
# In the USEPOLLUMETCONCEPT configuration it is assumed that all data file
# names start with prefix, followed by the time information. Such filenames
# would be too large for PCs running DOS, therefore there is no prefix
# for the USEARCSSCONCEPT (write NA in the appropriate column).
# Often times you will set the time lags to UK and run everything through
# converall determining the actual time lag. From this output you can
# make a statistics and determine an average time lag which you than can
# place in this table and reprocess the whole data after recompiling
# convertall with FINDACTUALLAG set to FALSE in convertall.h
# Normally the actual lag should be the best value to use, but for
# comparisions with people who only can process their data with a fixed
# time lag, this could be useful (or if the time lag seems to freak out
# when you run convertall with FINDACTUALLAG set TRUE).
