This grid represents approximately 100 kilometers of swath bathymetric data collected within the Upper St. Clair River, May 29 - June 4, 2008. These data are used to define the morphology of the riverbed.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?

The grid contained in the bathy_05m.zip file is available as an ESRI Binary grid and an ASCII grid with an ESRI header. However, the folder structure within bathy_05m.zip is critical to proper use of the ESRI binary grid.
To utilize these data, the user must have a GIS software package capable of reading ESRI Binary grids or 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.
