22.3. Data Storage

To upload data to MetaCloud:

  1. Download and use the MetaBase App
  2. Acquire sensor data with MetaBase
  3. Upload the data to the MetaCloud with MetaBase (it will prompt you to login)
  4. Verify that your data is on the cloud

First, let’s look at how to update data in this video:

You can view your raw data on the “Explorer” page on the “Home” tab.


There is a delete and download button for each data set and session. The data is available in CSV format.

Please note that your devices and data are automatically managed by the cloud; you don’t need to change, upload or update any of the sensor data or information manually.

22.4. Data Visualization

There are two sections on your MetaCloud Dashboard, your Main page “Home” and the “Data Analytics” section.

The “Dashboard” page on your “Home” tab is where all your data can be visualized.

There is a data picker for which you can select data by date, device mac, or session name:

22.5. Data Analysis

The “Data Filtering” page on your “Data Analytics” tab is where all your data can be filtered and analyzed.

Once data has been selected, it will be graphed on your screen automatically.

By default the latest data set is always graphed on the main page.

You are free to zoom and refresh the graphs. Select any filter you want to apply to the data:


22.6. Pattern Recognition

The “Machine Learning” page on your “Data Analytics” tab is where all your data can be trained my a machine.

Select the data you want to train the machine with and test it:
