MarkTags is a comprehensive post-processing program designed to work together with AcousticTag Software, the primary acquisition and 3D analysis software for Model 290/291/295 Acoustic Tag Receivers.
The main function of MarkTags is for generating Tracked Acoustic Tag Echoes (*.TAT files) from Raw Acoustic Tag Echoes (*.RAT files) using various automated methods for marking the data.
In brief, AcousticTag collects the raw data from the hydrophones, which is imported into MarkTags. MarkTags selects and separates all the data contained in the raw data file and makes marked data files. These files now contain Tracked Acoustic Tag Echoes (TAT files). The file can be used to produce summary information (i.e. survival studies, travel times, horizontal distribution) or can be further processed in AcousticTag to produce 3D analysis results.
