Format_Name: ESRI Grid
Format_Version_Number: ArcGIS 9.2
Format_Specification: ESRI Raster GRID format
WinZip file containing the ArcRaster grid of swath bathymetric data collected in the Cape Ann to Salisbury Beach Survey Area.
File_Decompression_Technique: no compression applied
Access_Instructions: Data can be downloaded via the World Wide Web (WWW)
These data are available as a ArcInfo 32-bit floating point binary grid in Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) format. The grid consists of two folders, one with the "grid name", and one "info" folder. The two folders for each grid are compressed into one file using WinZip (ver. 9.0) software. To utilize these data, the user must have software capable of uncompressing the WinZip file and importing and viewing an ESRI ArcRaster grid. The two folders for each grid must be uncompressed to the same folder. If during the process of extracting multiple grids in WinZip format to the same folder, the user is prompted by WinZip software to "overwrite existing files" in the info folder select the "yes" option.
