Sir/Ma'am

I have been collecting the strong motion data for the 8.1Mw Mexico
earthquake (8th September,2017). The data was well provided but I had this
small query. The data is in its raw form,i.e in counts; the scaling factor
is what I needed help for.
It would be nice if you could help with that, since the scaling factor
helps in converting the raw data into required acceleration.
Thanking You.

    Hi Shruti,

    There are a few different methods of converting this data described here:
