Using Echoview

Echoview enables you to log, display and analyze data from supported scientific echosounders.

Overview of using Echoview

The general approach to using Echoview is described below:

  1. You create an EV file.

  2. You add data file(s) to fileset(s).

  3. Echoview derives variables from the data files.

  4. You calibrate each derived variable.

  5. You display, analyze and process the variables as required.

  6. You export your results.
