Exporting integration analyses

There are three integration analyses that can be exported from an Sv echogram. They operate on single beam, split beam or dual beam data.

There is one integration analysis that can be exported from a scene. It operates on multibeam data.

Exporting integration analyses from SV echograms

Exporting integration analyses from SV echograms and scenes differs slightly in approach. You will need to prepare for such an export as follows:

Before exporting integration analyses from an SV echogram you must define what to export and how. Visit the Export page of the EV File Properties dialog box and choose the settings you need. Echoview provides default settings but this may not suit your needs.

You can export integrations from an SV echogram by:

Integration file format *.csv

Integration by cells

This option exports the selected integration variables for each cell in the currently defined grid. You must choose one of the following export formats on the Export page of the EV File Properties dialog box before you begin the export:

To export an integration by cells:

  1. Bring the SV echogram with the predefined grid into focus.
  2. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Cells and click Integration...
  3. Enter a name and location for the export file(s).
  4. Click Save.

Note: Integration by cells is available for a selected region via the right-click menu Export region, Integration by Cells.

Integration by regions

This option exports the selected variables from the Integration analysis groups and Analysis domain group for analysis regions on an echogram. Data are exported to a single .csv file that contains one line per region. It is available for single beam, split beam and dual beam data only. See Exporting integrations from scenes for integrating multibeam data by regions.

To export an integration by regions from an echogram:

  1. Bring the SV echogram with pre-defined analysis regions into focus.
  2. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Regions and click Integration...
  3. If the Export Integrated Regions - Select Classes dialog box displays, choose the region class(es) to include in the export, then click Export...
  4. Enter a name and location for the export file.
  5. Click Save.

Integration by regions by cells

This option exports the selected variables from the Integration analysis groups and Analysis domain group for the region-cell intersections in the current EV file. The exported data includes the cell (identified by layer and interval) in which each analysis region is located. You must choose one of the following export formats on the Export page of the EV file Properties dialog box before you begin the export:

To export an integration by regions by cells:

  1. Bring the SV echogram with predefined regions and grid into focus.
  2. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Regions by Cells and click Integration...
  3. If the Export Integrated Regions By Cells - Select Classes dialog box displays, choose the region class(es) to include in the export, then click Export...
  4. Enter a name and location for the export file(s).
  5. Click Save.

Exporting integration analyses from scenes

Before exporting integration analyses from a scene you must associate an SV variable with the scene and choose an algorithm. Visit the Analysis page of the Scene properties dialog box to define these settings. The default setting is None which will result in an export not containing any integration results. You can export integrations from scenes by regions only.

File format *.csv

Integration by regions

You can export 3D region integration variables for one or more 3D region(s) that are displayed in the scene you are currently viewing. The data are written to a .csv file.

To export an integration analysis for 3D region(s) that are displayed in the scene you are currently viewing:

  1. On the Scene menu, point to Export, and then click Analysis by Regions.
  2. Select a folder and enter a name for the export file(s).
  3. Click Save.
