This sun-illuminated GeoTIFF image may be used in a Geographic Information System (GIS), which uses GIS software as a tool to understand features in the trench and make interpretations of the geologic/bathymetric aspects therein. The intentions of this data set are to provide qualitative and quantitative visual information about the trench so that natural hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis can be better understood.
