PatternFinder - New sofware for analysing your data!

Star-Oddi is proud to announce the release of the PatternFinder software. With the use of PatternFinder, users can define events and the software automatically identifies patterns within data from DSTs (Data Storage Tags). Main benefits of the software are:

1. It increases the value of old and new DST data.
2. Less time is spent on data analysing.
3. Patterns within DST data can be identified that otherwise could be missed by the human eye.

With increased memory size in DSTs through the years, fish biologists and other users have been challenged when recapturing tags with memory full of data, covering sometimes 1-2 years in the lifes of fish or other subjects. The software identifies behavioral patterns related to depth and/or temperature based on events defined.

With high demand from scientists, and motivation from key customers, Star-Oddi has finished the development of this specialised advanced software; PatternFinder.  Visit the PatternFinder website. Contact us for more details or for a quotation.
