can possess any value - it is continuously and infinitely variable.
Data represented in continuous form, as contrasted with digital data having discrete values.
The representation of information in a way that bears an exact relationship to the original information, so that it varies continuously rather than discretely, as digital data does.
n. Data that is represented by continuous variations in some physical property, such as voltage, frequency, or pressure. Compare digital data transmission.
Non-discrete values such as voltages or amperages rather than numerical codes.
Analog data is data that can be considered to be an analog signal, as opposed to a digital signal, which is either on or off (1 or 0), or a series of discrete steps made from 1's and 0's, with no intermediate steps. Analog data is used by a wide variety of analog instruments, such as seismometers, sound level meters, and others.
