real time data

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
With reference to measurements-while-drilling (MWD) and logging while drilling, the data transmitted to surface shortly after being recorded. These are distinct from the data recorded into memory. Only a subset of the recorded data can be transmitted as real-time data because of the limited data rate of MWD telemetry systems. This reduces the number of channels, the sample interval, or both, in the real-time data.
