About single target analysis

Single targets may be analyzed over analysis domain(s). The resulting single targets analysis variables may be viewed on-screen or exported to .csv files.

Warning: Single targets are positioned on echograms using Target_on_axis_depth not Target_true_depth. All depth related calculations are made using Target_true_depth. See About single target depths before interpreting depth related information.

Refer to the settings on the analyis page of the Variable Properties dialog box that affect your results, and the settings on the Export page of the EV File Properties dialog box to configure your analysis export results.

The pre-Echoview 5 Logged Draft setting may have affected results.
