We describe in this paper our novel method for automatic spectra identification. The method is based on a featureless representation. The representation calculated based on delta modulation is a 0/1 sequences which can be used for comparison between different spectras. Three different similarity measures, the Hamming distance, the Levenshtein distance, and the Damerau- Levenshtein distance, have been studied. The pros and cons of these three distances are discussed in this paper. Finally, we present a novel and powerful method for spectrometer interpretation.
