Abstract: Open Source Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) have been around for several years and many of these are now specialized for a particular branch of science. Chemistry based ELNs are often challenged with an additional need to store various types of data files and the associated metadata specific to a type of lab instrument. These formats often contain spectral information, resulting in the further need to have graphical based viewing within the ELN. Traditionally, this would be performed by uploading the spectrum in the form of exported images and screenshots which is only a static graphical representation of the raw data. The purpose of this project is to embed a browser based spectral viewer into the ELN that will read the raw data values and output a form that allows for user interaction while preserving the original data.

To answer Dr. Bauer about the file type being recognized when uploaded, the answer is yes it will recognize the file type being uploaded. I just need to set the spectral viewer to look where the files are being uploaded into the system by the lab notebook so that it has both pieces available.
Here are some interesting

Completed since the last progress log:
At this point the project is to the point that a good presentation can be given on the ability of the ELN to include interactive spectral display for lab entries.
Additional Goals Before Presenting will be to:
