Data Worksheet

The Data Worksheet holds the GS+ analysis data. Data can be entered from a variety of sources, including spreadsheets, databases, various text formats, and by cutting and pasting from any Windows program. The data worksheet can hold over a million records, and a data filter can limit the range of data to be analyzed.

The Descriptive Statistics window provides information on the active data set, and provides the option to transform the data to a more normalized distribution.


Frequency distributions provide information about the normality of a particular data analysis set.

The Coordinate Posting window provides a map of sample locations coded by sample values. Values can be divided into quartiles, percentiles, or a variety of other distributions.
