Details in addition to the above sources of information are included for:

Cruise track window

Details for the samples under the mouse pointer on an open cruise track widow display include:

 

Description

Name

The Variable name.

Position

Latitude, Longitude in decimal degrees.

Time

Date and time along the cruise track.

Generations

The ping generation statistic (count). Pings are generated in Echoview on demand; for example, when an echogram is displayed or data is exported. The statistic can be used to set the ping cache limits to optimize your processing performance.

See also Reset Statistics: Generation.

Target

Target details include:

+ Target property from single beam data.

* Target property from multibeam data.

#Single target pulse properties.

Notes:

Target (from file)

File added to the fileset. This file contains multibeam target data in an Echoview single target data format. Such a file is commonly used to improve performance when working with multibeam targets.

Ping (from file)

Ping details pertinent only to the data file which contains the data point to which the mouse points. Different data files in the same fileset may have different settings. Echoview displays some of these values for your information only and uses other values in calculations and to adjust the data that are displayed on the echogram.

Note: If a parameter also appears on the Calibration page of the Variables properties dialog box, Echoview does not automatically use the value displayed under Ping (from file). You must manually enter the value you want Echoview to use on the Calibration page of the Variables properties dialog box.

Beam calibration

Simrad ME70 *.raw

Rendering

Rendering details include data associated with multibeam replay.

File

The File section contains the name of the data file from which the data point (sample) was derived. The File details are not displayed for virtual echograms.

The File page may display additional information from file (used by Echoview). These values are extracted from the data file by Echoview and are used to calculate the data that are displayed on the echogram.

Details in addition to the above information are included for:

Note: In some instances BioSonics .dt4 values can be unreliable. Refer to the BioSonics note for more information.

Color display

Color display details include data from the Echogram Display page of the Variable properties dialog box.

Calibration

Calibration details where available include data from the Calibration page of the Variable properties dialog box.

Grid

Grid details, from the Grid page of the Variable Properties dialog box, are displayed for Dataflow window Variable objects under the mouse pointer.

Analysis

Exclusion line or exclusion surface details, from the Analysis page of the Variable Properties dialog box, are displayed for Dataflow window Variable objects under the mouse pointer.

Notes

The notes content, from the Notes page of the Variable Properties dialog box or the General page of the Sticky Note Properties dialog box, is displayed for dataflow objects, echogram windows and cruise track windows under the mouse pointer.
