U.S. Geological Survey
This bathymetric data set will be used to define the seafloor morphology in the vicinity of the Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory and to provide initial conditions for wave and circulation modeling.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?

The grid contained in the GIS_catalog.zip file is available as an ESRI binary grid. To utilize this data, the user must have a GIS software package capable of reading an ESRI binary grid. The grid contained in the bathy_2m.zip file is available as an ASCII grid with an ESRI header. To utilize these data, the user must have a GIS software package capable of reading ASCII grids with ESRI headers, or be able to manipulate an ASCII matrix with a geospatial header. The ASCII raster files can be easily converted to ESRI grid format in either ArcView with Spatial Analyst extension (Import Data Source: ASCII Raster) or ArcGIS with Spatial Analyst extension (ASCII to Raster). The user should select floating point grid (as opposed to integer grid) when converting the bathymetry data.
