Large Scale Survey System (LSSS)
MAREC is a new project
initiated by Institute of Marine Research and Christian Michelsen
Research, both located in Bergen, Norway. The objective of MAREC is
to make new software utilities for marine acoustics data commercially
The first software product from MAREC is the Large
Scale Survey System (LSSS) (pronounced "L-triple-S"). This application
is intended for interpretation of data from multi-frequency echo sounders.
It will provide its functions both in online mode offshore, as well
as in post-processing mode onshore.
The LSSS is already regarded as the ideal tool for
stock assessment and ecosystems monitoring. Fast automatic school
detection and automatic school categorization make it possible to
interpret data as they are collected, and thus optimize ongoing surveys
in a dynamic manner. Raw data as well as interpreted data are stored
in a flexible database that you can configure to meet your own requirements.
In this way, large amounts of historic data can easily be made available
for resource management and research purposes.
