|Manage BATLOGGER recordings quickly and easily in projects||✓||✓||✓|
|Automatically find and measure bat calls||✓||✓||✓|
Bat callsBat search calls are automatically detected, marked and analyzed. Various call parameters, e.g. peak frequency or call shape, are determined and allow a determination of the species.

|Integrated bat species library||✓||✓||✓|
Bat species librariesThe application contains several bat species libraries. A library contains a list of species that can be assigned to recordings. Supplied libraries:
|Filter and sort recordings||✓||✓||✓|
|Spectrogram and waveform visualizations||✓||✓||✓|
Recording viewsThe recorded raw data (WAV data) can be displayed in different ways. Each method has its own strength when it comes to parameter measurements and species classification. The most important view for the bat call analysis is the spectrogram view. In addition, the data is also displayed as a waveform or spectrum. The data can be measured and visualized with a variety of tools. For example, the bat calls can be highlighted or the call intervals can be displayed.
|Diagrams and statistics||✓||✓||✓|
StatisticsBat activities, frequencies and species are displayed as clear diagrams. Export as image file.
|Map view with recording locations and GPX routes||✓||✓||✓|
|Data export (CSV, GPX, KML, PNG, WAV)||✓||✓||✓|
ExportThe recordings and the associated metadata such as species, calls, temperature, notes and many others can be exported for further processing.

|Customize guide colors||✓||✓|
Frequency guidesCreate custom colored guides at specific frequencies for visual discrimination in the spectrogram.
|Edit tasks and create new tasks||✓|
Automation with TasksTo speed up the analysis, recurring tasks can be automated. For example, mark (or delete) poor quality recordings, add notes to specific recordings or even automatically assign species. You can add/remove/edit/reorder tasks as you wish.
|Create/import project templates/settings||✓|
Project templatesProject templates allow you to manage different settings for different scenarios. For example, if your work consists of monitoring wind turbines and capturing for transects, it may be helpful to have two different templates, one for each domain. The one for wind turbines has more restrictions on call detection, while the one for transects, for example, may have a less restrictive filter for “Find bad recordings”. Import project settings from existing projects.
|Create/import species libraries||✓|
|Extended export functions||✓|
|Import different recording formats into projects (RAW, FLAC, WAV, time-stretched, real-time, multichannel)||✓|
|Import structured CSV data and assign it to the recordings||✓|
Import additional dataStructured data (CSV) can be read in and assigned to the recordings. Due to the intelligent assignment possibilities, data from other sources can also be processed.
|Import log files into the project and display them||✓|
BATREC.LOGFor a complete monitoring it is important to have data about the device status even in times with no recordings. The BATLOGGER devices store a log file which records continuously. This data is automatically transferred into the project and saved so that the complete recording phase can be reconstructed at any time.
|Complement (missing) recording locations automatically from GPX data||✓|
Add recording locations from a GPX track fileRecording locations can be assigned from a GPX track file, e.g. if recordings were made with devices without GPS. It is even possible to interpolate missing places with this function, even if no GPX file was recorded at all. The data is merged using the time stamps of the trackpoints and the recording time stamps.
