Hello
I just installed deepview and Siview, they don't offer to open DAT file. Is there a way to go around. I would like to convert DAT file from and Helix to XTF format.
Thanks

When you view the data in SIview, do you get access to the GPS location data as well?
I am trying to map sea grass on a lake bed using side scan but am struggling to access this kind of spatial data.

Ideally I want to convert the seagrass coverage I am seeing into some kind of GIS map. Can anyone help?
