The purpose of this dataset is to record the trackline navigation along which bottom video was recorded and using the the large SEABed Observation and Sampling System (SEABOSS) during USGS survey 07003, conducted September 7-11, 2007 aboard the R/V Connecticut offshore Massachusetts in the Northern Cape Cod Bay survey area. This data set was collected to ground-truth (verify) the acoustic data sets that were acquired during USGS geophysical surveys 06012 (2006), 07001 (2007), 07002 (2007), and 08002 (2008). High-resolution digital photographs of the seafloor were also taken during the video drift (see shapefile CCB_BottomPhotos.shp).
