Exporting single targets analyses

Single target analyses exports are used to export an analysis of single targets in the following analysis domains:

The exported data include the number of targets in the domain, the average depth/range of targets in the domain, the mean of the compensated TS values of the single targets in the domain, empty pings (optional) etc. See single target analysis variables for a full list of the variables that are exported.

Generally, you perform the export on a single targets echogram (rather than a Sv echogram, TS echogram etc). The echogram should have at least one defined region that is visible.

Notes:

Setting up the export

Choose the analysis variables to export, and the export format:

  1. Open the EV File Properties dialog box (Press F6).
  2. Click on the Export tab.
    1. Under the Analysis variables to export section, select the single target analysis variables to export.
    2. In the Output format section choose the required export format. If you select the database format, the single target properties for each target will also be exported.
    3. Enable the export of empty cells, in the General section. (For Single target analysis by cells and Single target analysis by regions by cells.)
  3. Click OK to save your changes and close the EV File Properties dialog box.

Single targets analysis by regions

The single targets analysis by regions export command is used to export single target analyses for regions in an echogram. Each row in the exported .csv file contains the single target analysis variables for a single region.

  1. Complete the set up.
  2. Bring the single target echogram into focus.
  3. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Regions and click Single Targets... to open the Export Single Target Data by Regions - Select Classes dialog box.
  4. Choose the region class(es) of interest, then click Export... to open the Save file dialog box.
  5. Navigate to a destination folder and enter a File name for the file(s).
  6. Click Save.

Notes:

Single targets analysis by cells

The single targets analysis by cells export command is used to export single targets analyses for cells on an echogram.

  1. Complete the set up.
  2. Bring the single target echogram into focus.
  3. Define a grid (if not already done).
  4. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Cells and click Single Targets....
  5. Navigate to a destination folder and enter a File name for the file(s).
  6. Click Save.

Notes:

Single target analysis by regions by cells

The single targets analysis by cells export command is used to export single targets analyses for region-cell intersections on an echogram.

To export a single target analysis by regions by cells:

  1. Complete the set up.
  2. Bring the single target echogram into focus.
  3. Define a grid (if not already done).
  4. On the menu, navigate to Echogram, Export, Analysis by Regions by Cells and click Single Targets... to open the Export Single Target Data by Regions - Select Classes dialog box.
  5. Choose the region class(es) of interest, then click Export... to open the save file dialog box.
  6. Navigate to a destination folder and enter a File name for the file(s).
  7. Click Save.

Notes:

Single target export file format (*.csv)

The single target analysis export output is a subset of Single target export file format (*.target.csv) and also includes:
