Echotools Echotools

The Echotools library (echotools-libs) is a python package we developed to aid processing and visualization of acoustic data. Features of echotools includes parsers for data from various echosounders, calculations for echometrics developed by Urmy et al. (2012), and scripts to produce echograms from fixed or mobile platforms. Our other current data products and software are built on top of Echotools!

Data Portal Slocum Glider Data Portal

Data portals are used in research to display data collected by autonomous vehicles in deployment. We work with glider labs from University of Alaska Fairbanks and University of South Florida St. Petersburg, so this data portal demonstrates the utility of Echotools in creating data products such as echometrics and echograms during deployment which are informative to researchers. This portal was updated once a day during deployment, and is now used to display post-processed data collected by the glider.

BatchMetrics BatchMetrics

BatchMetrics is a desktop application that can process multiple (i.e., batches of) acoustic files to produce echograms, noise-filtered echograms, and a csv file holding echometrics for each file. This app acts as a graphical user interface version of the processEchograms program in Echotools.
