Please contact Echoview Support if you require assistance.

  1. Getting started with Echoview (3.3 MB)
    In this tutorial we cover key concepts and navigation when using Echoview. New Echoview users should complete this tutorial first. 
  2. Introduction to integration (2.1 MB)
    This tutorial covers both the on-screen generation and export of echointegration results. Echointegration is a key concept in the conversion of hydroacoustic backscatter to biomass. Many of the concepts and techniques covered apply to the variety of other analyses you can perform in Echoview.
  3. Introduction to live viewing (0.5 MB)
    This tutorial covers the basics of live viewing. Live viewing provides the ability to view and process your data as it being collected. This is particularly useful during adaptive surveys, where findings are used to guide the survey in real time. 
  4. Introduction to COM scripting (11.6 MB)
    This tutorial provides a basic introduction to COM scripting in Echoview, to show you how to automate your processing, which will save you valuable time.
  5. Introduction to fish tracking (3.1 MB)
    Covers the basics of detecting single fish targets and analyzing their tracks in space and time. This is a popular approach in river studies but can be applied equally well in lakes and marine environments.
  6. Introduction to multibeam target data processing (11.0 MB)
    Demonstrates the basics of multibeam target data processing using data from a DIDSON or ARIS imaging sonar. The techniques are also applicable to data from other imaging sonars, or “acoustic cameras”, or multibeam data in which individual fish targets are visible.
  7. Introduction to the formula operator (2.9 MB)
    Covers the basics of using the formula operator to implement custom mathematical and logical expressions for manipulation of echogram data, and demonstrates the ‘Z-score’ technique as described by De Robertis, McKelvey and Ressler (2010).
  8. Introduction to bottom classification (333 MB)
    This tutorial covers the basics of bottom classification using single and split-beam echosounder data.
