Data Files (Labels, Scalars, Tensors, Vectors)

User-defined label, scalar, vector, and tensor data can be input and used for comparison against model results. They can also be used to store data calculated from the model for visualization.

When create from a file, the data may be in text or binary format, however, there is a specific file format for each data type as defined below. Once user data is created, it is accessible for inquiry or transformation via FISH and can be visualized in a plot of the current model, as each data type has a plot item associated with it (see the c labels, c scalars, c tensors, and c vectors plot items).
