What are the units in the CSV files? The wavelengths are provided in the far left, but the values for the blue, green, and red peaks are different from the %intensity that can be obtained from scrolling along the spectra graphs with the mouse. The values are over 100, so it doesn't appear to be the % transmittance. The values are also too high for absorbance. Could someone please clarify for me? Thank you.
They are the RGB image data pixel values, from 0-255. And note that due to image processing, noise, etc, this may not directly correspond to absorbance values!
So I take it the percentages that come from scrolling along the graph are the ratio of the data pixel values to the max of 255, correct?

That's right! We thought 0-100 would be more familiar to people, but the original values are preserved in the raw data.
