- Version Comparison
about how you can benefit from new features to enhance your analysis capabilities
Advancing Your Analysis Capabilities
Every new Noesis version is a definitive
improvement over the last one. This is possible
through constant implementation of user
feedback, new functions and research in the
future needs based on the vast experience of
users around the world.
The main structure of the software have been
kept identical so that users can work with the
new version immediately.
New Modular Design
The user can choose from two basic Editions
(Light and Professional) and add any
combinations of two available modules (ASCII
data/wave file support and Zonal Location).
In this manner the user can “build” the package
most suitable both for the analysis needs and
For high-end users the Enterprise Edition
is the best choice which includes all
modules and the additional Live-SPR
and Periodic Statistics functions.
In addition check the Upgrade and Multiple
Upgrading from Noesis v4.x
New Pages. A new and innovative pages function
with simple graph arrangement method and
ASCII Waveform import capability.
Multi-Hit Extraction. Noesis can split
waveforms to multiple hits depending on user
set h/w setup. This is effectively as
re-acquiring the data.
WFS file support including WFS Live-SPR. For
PCI-2 board owners with waveform streaming
files the support of such files in Noesis will
give them the large array of tools available
in Noesis for WFS files. WFS Live-SPR can
extract features and classify WFS data as they
DSP Filters/Windowing in wave graphs and for
feature extraction and wave export.
Linear 3D location. User who have the LOC
module can now upgrade to include the spatial
RMS and Autocorrelation.
These functions are now available for any
Waveform Segment Use.
Users can define sections of waveforms and use
them for DSP calculation, Feature Extraction
Fast Data Loaders
to make using large AE files easy.
Enhanced Bin Plots
with various bin mode values available.
Time Mark Management
for AE DTA files.
Upgrading from Noesis v3.x
Noesis v3.0, v3.1, v3.3 or v3.5 users will
benefit from the following added features:
Live-SPR, for data classification and
processing during acquisition and periodic
statistics. Available in the Enterprise
Density (color-by-value) plot.
Filter entire time segments.
New Save Dialog and capabilities
for data export to virtually any format.
Channel Stats and Amplitude Distribution
New TDD Data Handling. Can even be treated,
Increased Flexibility via Wizards (Save, UPR,
New Frequency and Time Domain
Zonal Source Location
(v3.0) with Event correspondence and sequence
Functions (v3.0) for structured plot
arrangement and management.
TDA waveform file support, for all TDA files
(long waveforms etc.).
Entire/Extended Feature Set from TDA
Complex Data Filters
for Detailed Data Filtering. A very powerful
filtering and data selection tool.
to any Feature.
Use of Extracted Arrival Times in Location.
Importing External (User) Parametric
Upgrading from Noesis v1.0 and v2.0
Noesis v2.0 users will benefit from the
Waveform Viewing in any split view.
Waveforms and DSP functions (FFT real, imag,
Power Spectrum etc.) can be shown in any
Features can be extracted
from waveforms. The available feature set
contains Time and Frequency domain features to
form an extended feature set.
can be added to the data from calculations on
the existing features.
New Unsupervised Pattern Recognition
Menu and User Interface improvements
throughout the software.
Noesis v1.0 users will also benefit from:
Data Viewing and Graphics Management
Noesis 4.0 has many more plot types,
easier plot definition and customization
with numerous user options (improved plot
settings dialog) and can store the entire
working environment in a compact file
(separate from the data) which can be used in
other documents to easily recreate complex plot
configurations. A Copy Plot Settings
function also aids in simple plot configuration.
New zooming capabilities have also been added.
Multiple Data File loading
and handling. Extended data selection modes,
multiple selections in all types of
plots, dedicated Data Filters etc.
Time Driven Data full support etc.
Changes also include Improved ASCII Data File
support, File Merging etc.
The algorithms and user options have been
extended to provide a better working environment
for such complex tasks. The user is easier now
to keep track of Data Set viewing, decide on the
quality of the classification (confusion
matrices etc), apply different algorithms and
Note: The above mentioned added functions for
each of the previous Noesis versions include the
main improvements and are indicative of the
software development. Other functions added are
not mentioned here.
