New Improved Version Of BatExplorer Software
New BatExplorer version 1.9
Clearer and faster. One could summarize the new version of the BatExplorer software.
A new "compact view" of the spectrograms increases the overview
significantly. The calls will be cut and concatenated so you can see
call shapes and type at a glance. Horizontal guide lines enable quick
visual distinction or grouping of bat species and thereby accelerate the
Thanks to new calculation algorythms the analysis is now faster and the call recognition is improved.
By zooming with the mouse in the activity or frequency diagram, the
recordings can now be filtered easily and quickly by time or frequency.
Also, the map and the call list is now adjusted accordingly.
now possible to enter custom texts as bat species. This also allows to

GPX track was recorded, its altitude and speed profile can be shown.
The obvious, major difference in this version – is of course the compressed sonogram windows. As described, They are smaller but show a more pronounced image of the actual bat calls. I believe this is an excellent improvement. One of the other main things that I noticed right away, is the improved look of the Statistics window: It features a more accurate depiction of data, which can be read at a quick glance. I like it!
Happy bat detecting!
