What I want to do or know

I want to know if and how I can use the downloaded spectral file (e.g. csv or xml) to create a spectral distribution graph like the one spectrometers show.


Also is there anyway (and whether it is allowed) to download/compile an executable (.exe) file that runs public lab spectrometer like a portable file with ability to calibrate?

Hi sohelikh, I don't know how to create a spectral distribution graph like those you say.
The Spectralworkbench can be instaled in any computer running a local server for sure. You can install it in your laptop for example but I don't really know if an executable file can be done to port it let's say, in a pendrive.
Installation instructions can be found here:

You can also shoot your pictures with your regular camera (not through the spectralworkbench tool) upload them to spectralworkbench.org and calibrate your spectra afterwards.

Yes, there is CSV, XML, and JSON data download for each spectrum. It's on the lower left side of the screen in a grey bar. Hope that helps!
