Coming soon in Echoview 14: support for Lowrance fish finders, Kongsberg kmall files, and more

Echoview 14
30 August, 2023

Our continued collaborations with the underwater research community have resulted in exciting new partnerships and developments with technology leaders.

Echoview 14­ will include support for:

  • Navico Group Lowrance fish finders, including HDS and Elite product lines, and other consumer Simrad systems that record sonar logs (sl2/sl3/slg files).
  • Kongsberg EM systems multibeam data recorded to kmall and kmwcd files.
  • Furuno FCV-38 split beam data recorded to version 2 of the ICES SONAR-netCDF4 standard.


Lowrance fish finder data on left, with the results of Echoview’s target detection algorithm shown on right. Once detected, targets may then be tracked and counted.

These additions build on our already extensive list of compatible hydroacoustic systems - Echoview supports data from over 75 echosounders and sonars across 17 brands. For a full list please see here.

Echoview 14 will be available for beta testing in the coming weeks.
