Description:
Abstract:
XYZ ASCII format data generated from the 2001 multibeam sonar survey of the West Florida Shelf, Gulf of Mexico. The data include high-resolution bathymetry and calibrated acoustic backscatter.
Purpose:
geographic information systems (GIS) or other software to display bathymetry and backscatter data of the West Florida Shelf, Gulf of Mexico.

Process_Description:
The bathymetry and backscatter data were collected along a continuous swath perpendicular to the direction of the ship using a Kongsberg Simrad EM1002 multibeam sonar system. The data are cleaned of bad navigation and depth readings. The depth readings are gridded into a common grid. The gridded data are converted to an XYZ ASCII format file (Longitude, Latitude, Attribute) and the gridded data are converted to ArcInfo GRID format using ArcInfo's ASCIIGRID command.
