ODF uses data processing software and techniques that were developed internally and provide exceptional fitting of CTD and hydrographic data. The software is regularly updated to take full advantage of the latest coding standards and improvements. Processing is performed continually on-board by ODF personnel, allowing for real-time quality control and timely delivery of data.

The software is all-encompassing with the ability to process raw data, perform quality control with automated data flagging, easily visualize the finalized data, and export to netCDF using standardized conventions. Users have the ability to get the highest quality data out of their measurements.
