File Organization of Scans

Scan Directories

Scan files are written into directories:

/ncsServer/mrt/ncs/data/<date>/scans/<scanNumber> (and subdirectories) 
/vis/<project>/observationData/<date>/scans/<scanNumber>(and subdirectories)

Note: You might also find that the "day directories" are replaced by a tar archive.
