I am looking for tables of positional values for the swing of a pendulum over time. This should include angular data.

You can generate your own tables from the equation for a position of a pendulum.This simple equation is valid for small oscillations:θ(t) = θ_{0}COS(2πt/T)Where:θ(t) is the angle as a function of timeθ_{0} is the initial angleCOS is the Cosine functiont is the timeand T is the period of the pendulumFor larger swings, it diverges from a Cosine function.See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pendulum#Period_of_oscillation
