The purpose of this data set is to record the locations of 673 bottom photographs that were collected with the large SEABed Observation and Sampling System (SEABOSS) to ground-truth (verify) the acoustic data sets acquired during USGS geophysical surveys 06012 (2006), 07001 (2007), 07002 (2007), and 08002 (2008). Bottom video were also taken at each station occupied by the SEABOSS (see shapefile CCB_SeabossTracklines.shp).
