R2Sonic data files

Echoview supports *.r2s data files recorded by R2Sonic multibeam sonars (2022/2024/2026, 2020, WCI).

Water Column




Echoview reads beamformed data without support for phase. You can verify R2Sonic files with Echocheck.

Recorded TruePixTM data (highly compressed water column imagery) can be read from file. Echoview assumes a fan of data with port data to the left of the fan center and starboard data to the right of the fan center. TruePix port and starboard data that don't conform to that assumption, are not added to the multibeam fan.

Please contact support@echoview.com if you are interested in phase data support in future versions of Echoview.
