To release a color shaded-relief GeoTIFF of the 2-m bathymetry generated from NOAA survey H11999 north of Duck Pond Point, New York in geographic, WGS84 coordinates.
1. Input coordinate system: NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_18N 2. Output coordinate system: GCS_WGS_1984 3. Geographic transformation method: NAD_1983_WGS_1984_5 4. Resampling technique: BILINEAR 5. Output cell size: 0.000022 (decimal degrees, default as calculated by ArcMap for a 2 meter cell size)The geographic transformation selected is the most accurate one provided by ESRI as it ties in WGS84 with ITRF96, thus reflecting the earth centered offset (x-y-z) between WGS84 and NAD83 (from the ESRI Knowledge Base Document Number 24159).
