What it Does

This dialog allows the user to Export Soundings to GSF format.

General Description


The Systems group contains all the systems available for export. Selecting the checkbox next to a system will include it in the exported dataset. Depending on the export file format, multiple systems may be available for export.


The Options group contains additional options that can be applied to the exported dataset. If an option is greyed out, it is not available for the current file.

Include water column picks will include any additional water column picks selected by the user in a previous processing workflow.

Include raw backscatter imagery will include the backscatter/snippet information if available. Unticking this box will prevent backscatter post-processing ability in other application including FMGT. 

Flag all filtered soundings as manual edits will change filtered flags to manual flags in the exported GSF. This has been made the default to align with the most common GSF interchange workflows.

Flag all Interpolated Soundings as Accepted will accept soundings from Kongsberg systems with the interpolated detection class. The interpolated soundings are useful for backscatter post-processing in other applications such as FMGT.
