Why was the data set created?

These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public. The data can be used with geographic information systems (GIS) or other software to display bathymetry and backscatter data of Crater Lake, Oregon.

How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?
  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?
    Date: 03-Aug-2000 (process 1 of 3)
    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 ArcInfo GRID format using ArcInfo's ASCIIGRID command.
    Date: 23-May-2018 (process 2 of 3)
    Metadata was modified to bring up to current USGS PCMSC standards. Several Thesaurus and keywords were added, and minor typos were corrected. No data information was changed. Person who carried out this activity:
