This text file contains the bathymetry data acquired during National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Survey H11321. It includes sounding data collected along track lines as well as small areas of multibeam bathymetry collected in areas of interest, gaps of no data exist between track lines. Data are recorded with 6 columns (coordinates recorded in UTM) in the order: Latitude, Longitude, Depth, Density, Shoal, and Deep. Depth is the value assigned to the grid node based on all the sounding data affecting the node and the weighing scheme. Density is the number of depth measurements affecting the node. Shoal is the shoalest depth measurement affecting the node. Deep is the deepest measurement affecting the node.
