"Before we had Echoview, my time was invested in syntax and coding in order to ask questions of the data. Now, with Echoview, I am able to focus on the ecological questions I want to ask of the data. Once those questions are formalized into the Workflow, Echoview does all the heavy lifting. Echoview allows my investment of intellect to stay closer to the reasons I do this work - ecological insights."
