Using the integram

Ping status integram

Displays the assigned user defined status of time intervals in an echogram. Time intervals (pings) are specified using the Vertical band selection tool.

Preparations for integram analysis

  1. Refer to About Ping status.
  2. Click an Sv variable and on the Shortcut menu select Variable Properties, Echogram Display page, Integram analysis: Ping status

Mean Sv integram or Maximum Sv integram

Sv integram analysis boundaries are affected by the Exclude Above and the Exclude Below lines on the Analysis page of the Variable Properties dialog box.

A useful technique is to constrain an Sv integram analysis to the data between two lines. For example when using the Find Next Integram Value feature to fix intrusions of the bottom over a bottom pick line.

Preparations for integram analysis

  1. Create lines to represent the boundaries of bathymetric features. For example an editable bottom pick, and a virtual line offset above by a few meters to focus the integram analysis on the bottom.
  2. Specify the lines as the Exclude Above and Exclude Below lines on the Analysis page of the Variable Properties dialog box.
  3. Select an Sv integram analysis under Integram on the Echogram Display page of the Variable Properties dialog box.
    1. Specify an Sv integram feature threshold value (dB).
    2. Specify an Sv integram feature threshold condition (greater than or less than).

Notes:

Bottom classification integram

A bottom classification integram displays bottom class colors from a specified bottom points variable. Auto-synchronize a bottom classification integram with a Media window, bottom points cruise track and bottom points table to analyze bottom points data and edit (bottom) class.

Preparations for integram analysis

Bottom points variables on the Dataflow window are created from a displayed single beam Sv variable and applying Echogram menu > Classify Bottom. See Configuring a bottom classification for more information.

  1. Click an Sv variable and on the Shortcut menu select Variable Properties, Echogram Display page , Integram analysis: Bottom classification.
  2. Use Echogram Display page, Bottom variable: and make a selection from the Bottom variable list
