Matlab Code

MATLAB code for opening PAMGuard binary files is now on the PAMGuard GitHub repository.

The code is available from Clicking the green 'Code' button will allow you to download the code as a zip archive. Alternatively, you can clone the repository, which will make it easier to get updates if the code is updated. 


R Code

Thanks so much to our friends at NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center in San Diego , there is also an R package for opening PAMGuard binary files.  You can find the files on the GitHub page,

It will be available on CRAN soon, but for now the best way to download and stay up-to-date with this is by following the installation instructions on the GitHub page. The R functions are written to work just like the MATLAB code, and there is a short tutorial on the GitHub page.
