EKKO_Project™ Software

Overview

EKKO_Project is the all-inclusive software solution for managing, displaying, processing and interpreting GPR data.

Once the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data collection in the field is complete, the next step is to pull out the key information and images and generate a final report.

The EKKO_Project software makes complex GPR analysis easy with intuitive tools to organize, edit, process and plot your GPR data. Powerful visualization, analysis and integration tools allow you to quickly and easily produce impressive reports.

EKKO_Project: From field to finished report

EKKO_Project consists of a base program with optional modules. The base package provides file organization, quick visualization of your project information in a single window and automated reporting.

EKKO_Project works with project .gpz files automatically exported from current GPR systems. An embedded database structure allows all GPR data and ancillary files (GPS, topography, photos, notes, etc.) to be housed in a single .gpz file for a specific project. A project file could contain a single GPR line or several hundred lines from a complex survey. Legacy .dt1 and .hd files can also be imported. Any available project information can easily be added to the .gpz file, providing a single point for all your survey information.

The main user interface consists of a number of window panes to provide an overview of the project.

Ekko Project

Project Explorer:

  • Displays all Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) lines and grids in the project
  • GPR lines can be grouped into linesets or grids
  • Add, copy, delete and rename data
  • Select multiple GPR lines for batch processes

Line preview:

Display the ground penetrating radar (GPR) line selected in Project Explorer.

Attachments:

GPS, topography, photos, videos, voice recordings, field notes, sketch maps, etc.

Layer view:

Select layers to display in MapView and Line Preview

Data acquisition parameters:

All data file attributes are immediately visible, including date of collection, system type, survey type, postioning and advanced parameters.

MapView displays:

  • Grid lines
  • GPS paths
  • Flags added in the field
  • Field and Point interpretations
  • Depth slices generated by data acquisition hardware or processed with SliceView
  • Slice through all grids simultaneously, regardless of orientation

GPS:

  • GPR Lines and Grids appear in correct location and orientation
  • Define Project to Global coordinates
  • Correct GPS for offsets from the GPR sensor

Reporting:

Create superior deliverables with your company logo easily using the GPR summary report button. Combine screenshots of your data and attached photographs to quickly document your insights.
Or output data files in a spreadsheet (.csv), Google Earth (.kmz) or AutoCAD (.dxf) format listing fiducials and interpretations that are easily imported by GIS, CAD and other software.
