The new Scanline data acquisition and logging software package for StarFish is now available.
Scanline software operates from any Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP/Vista based PC or laptop to capture and display real-time StarFish side-scan sonar data. It can also acquire data from several other sensors including GPS, compasses and speedometers and all data can be logged, replayed and exported from the software. Data can be exported into industry standard XTF (eXtended Triton Format) or CSV (Comma Separated Value) formats, suitable for use in third party analysis software.
StarFish's Software & IT Systems Engineer, Chris Booth has been working hard to help make Scanline's Hardware Manager interface easy-to-use, meaning you'll be up and running in no time. Chris Booth says,
"Users can quickly add, remove and configure all hardware devices recognised by the software in one location. Helpful 'Wizards' guide you through many hardware management tasks making system configuration very simple".
The built-in web browser window within Scanline allows users with an active internet connection on their PC or laptop to view online content from the StarFish website and read the very latest StarFish news headlines as soon as they are published directly from the software.
Scanline software is available for free from the software downloads section of the Starfish website.
