Dendrochronological data is typically generated either by the measurement of rings using a standard measurement platform (e.g. Velmex, Lintab, Catras, etc.) or via the manual measuring of rings with a hand lens. Using either method, the resulting data typically ends up in specialist dendrochronological software for analysis.
