Image data files

Echoview supports the display of image files (*.jpg or *.jpeg) that contain Exif data. If no valid Exif data is contained within the file, a *.media.csv file can be created to supply the date/time information that Echoview requires. Image data is displayed in a Media window and can be auto-synchronized with echograms.

Images added to a fileset are derived as an image variable.

Notes:

*.media.csv file

A *.media.csv file contains a list of image file names with associated dates and times (that allow millisecond precision) in comma separated variable format. The information in the file is used instead of image EXIF data. The *.media.csv file should be in the same folder as the image files. If there are multiple files with the .media.csv extension, Echoview ignores all but the first file.
