Detect and observe bats successfully

Bats use an ingenious ultrasonic echolocation system for guidance and tracking prey. Our BATLOGGER equipment and software takes advantage of this speciality by recording and analyzing the sounds of the animals. The BATSCANNER bat detectors open the inaudible ultrasonic world to our ears. Our devices are very sensitive, so you will no more miss any bat passing by. You will immediately hear it, no matter on what frequency it is calling.

22.09.2015 – BatExplorer 1.11

We are pleased to announce the release of the new BatExplorer software version 1.11.

With the new functions, the analysis can be accelerated significantly in some cases, some extensions improve the overview, others simplfy the workflow. The main innovations introduced shortly:

Customizable spectrogram display
If the existing color palettes do not correspond to your preference, the spectrogram colors can now be adjusted completely. Also new is the ability to manually set the zoom view (frequency / length) and save and restore the current view.

It is now possible to filter species suggestions. This allows, for species with reliable automatic detection, to classify all the recordings in a single step. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Set the filter. Detection plausibility, recording quality and other parameters allow a reliable selection.
  2. Select all filtered recordings (Ctrl + A).
  3. Right-click -> "Assign species ..." and then select and assign the species.
  4. The selected recordings are now all classified.

Color markers
The bat species are now color-marked. In the map, for example, the distribution of species can thereby be seen at a glance  and generally it increases the overview in the whole workflow.

Instant classification

Some species can be recognized at a glance and it is helpful to assign them with the least possible effort. Therefore, you can now create qick assign buttons that do the job with a single click, and optionally open the next recording directly.
In addition, now a list with your own species or classifications (e.g. cricket) can be managed. Thus, they can be easily assigned and you have not to enter them again every time.
