Echoview: Sound Knowledge

Nortek Signature 100 echosounder data recorded from a mooring. Data kindly shared by the Antarctic Ecosystem Research Division, NOAA.

Echoview® is a mature and trusted Windows-based software program that is unsurpassed in its scope, power and flexibility, making it the software of choice for hydroacoustic data processing.

What is Echoview?

  • Analysis Suite

    For those needing the full power of Echoview and its extensive tools for exploring, processing, and analyzing hydroacoustic data.

  • Survey Suite

    Designed to support the collection, visualization and cataloging of echosounder and sonar data, whether in the field or in the office.

  • Habitat Classification

    Characterize and classify the nature of submerged vegetation and the bottom from echosounder backscatter measurements.


Analysis Suite

Modules can be added to increase your processing capabilities


Read data and display echograms from supported systems. Detect the bottom and surface, and define other reference lines. Create 3D digital terrain models of the seabed and 3D displays of map data. Perform quality control, conduct analyses on data, and export results for use elsewhere. The core module of this suite.


Automate data processing using a language of your choice (COM interface supplied).

Advanced Operators

Manipulate your data by creating new echograms from existing ones using advanced operators and algorithms. Compare frequencies, apply quality controls, classify data, interpret and apply Python source files, and more.

Fish Tracking

Detect and analyze the tracks of individual fish and other targets in single- and split-beam data. Count fish and examine their behavior over time.

School Detection

Detect and analyze fish schools or bubble aggregations in single- and split-beam data.

Multibeam Fish Tracking

Detect, track, and analyze individual fish targets in data from multibeam systems, including imaging sonars. Fish tracking in data from single- and split-beam systems is also included in this module.

Multibeam School Detection

Detect, track, and analyze fish schools or bubble aggregations in data from multibeam systems.

Survey Suite

Stand-alone or in combination with the Analysis Suite.

Survey suite

Read data and display echograms from supported systems. Save echograms as image files. Annotate echograms using regions, and export annotation logs. Display and explore echograms, cruise tracks and 3D curtains from existing supported data files, or in real-time from selected Simrad, BioSonics, Sound Metrics and Kongsberg echosounders and sonars. Includes a license for Echoexplore, a tool to catalog and view hydroacoustic data files.

Habitat Classification

Stand-alone or in combination with the Analysis Suite.

Habitat Classification

Detect and analyze submerged aquatic vegetation in single and split beam data, then export results. Detect, analyze, and classify the bottom substrate in single and split beam data for seabed characterization and habitat mapping purposes, then view and export classification results.

Process your data quickly and easily

Using Echoview ensures your precious time is spent interpreting your data.
