Difference Between 'Raw Data' and 'Diff Raw Data'

    Difference Between 'Raw Data' and 'Difference Raw Data'

    I have a whole bunch of information and it's plotted on a graph.

    The first graph is the raw data plotted, no transformations done to the data, it is raw.
    The second graph is the same data but it says 'Diff Raw Data'
    The second graph looks similar but you can tell it's different

    The same applies for another graph of the data, but it's the log of the points, this graph is just the log of the points, no alterations
    The second graph is the 'Diff Log Data'
    again, the second graph looks simliar but you can tell it's different

    Does anyone know how what 'Diff Data' means and how they get it from the first graph? The explanation doesn't refer to how they got the second graphs of Diff Data and I am just confused and have understanding of this.

    Thank You

    I think you are being to vague. You never mention what you are even using to graph with.
