EchoScape is a versatile, interactive post-processing program that writes hydroacoustic data to a database, performs data analysis, and displays results. EchoScape offers a straightforward means of selecting individual fish traces or fish aggregations from data files output by HTI Model 240-series Split-Beam Systems. Fish traces can be instantly retracked and displayed multiple times. This feature is useful for quickly refining tracking parameters (e.g.,
pulse, minimum threshold, etc.) and immediately observing the results.
EchoScape allows multiple fish summary files (*.FSH) to be concatenated into daily files. By setting criteria for any or all fields in the input files, the data fields included in the concatenated file can be selected to include only those of interest. Data is output as Microsoft Access™ database files with multiple tables for easy sorting and selecting of tracked fish, echoes, and echo integration summaries.
