Single beam processing

In Hydromagic Survey version 6.0 and higher, recorded data is stored as 'raw data files'. In order to create filtered, corrected and synchronized sounding data, which can be used to calculate volumes, depth contours, digital terrain models and more, we have to process the previously recorded raw data files.

The sounding wizard

The sounding wizard is one of the most important tools in the Hydromagic Survey software.
It allows you to convert one or more raw data files into (corrected) sounding files.

The wizard leaves the original recorded data intact and creates a second set of data files to track all the changes you made.

This method allows you to do corrections and filtering over and over again until you are fully satisfied with the result.
In case the data might become corrupted, just instruct the wizard to start over with the original raw data.

Starting the sounding wizard

After you recorded one or more raw data files, you can combine data from these files into sounding files.
To do so, you have to select the "Generate Soundings..." option from the "Tools" menu.

The wizard will be displayed. You are now ready to create some sounding files.

The first page of the wizard tells us what to expect in the few next steps.
After quickly reading this information, just click "Next" to proceed to the next step.
