Count Component Title Abstract
1 NOS Hydrographic Surveys Collection The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has the statutory mandate to collect hydrographic data in support of nautical chart compilation for safe navigation and to provide background data for engineers, scientific, and other commercial and industrial activities. Hydrographic survey data primarily consist of water depths, but may also include features (e.g. rocks, wrecks), navigation aids, shoreline identification, and bottom type information. NOAA is responsible for archiving and distributing the source data as described in this metadata record. Survey types are B: Hydrographic EEZ Surveys; D: Discovery Surveys; H: Hydrographic Surveys; F: Field Edit Surveys; W: Non-NOS Hydrographic Surveys.

Note: this is a tiled image service, cached to zoom level 16 (2.4 m resolution), with level 17 (1.2 m) available in many areas. In the ArcGIS JavaScript API, it can be loaded as an ArcGISTiledMapServiceLayer (faster), or as an ArcGISImageServiceLayer (slower). search

Allows access to the underlying images; allows subsets using a definition query; maximum of 80 rasters displayed at a time. When using the subsets version in ArcMap or the JavaScript/Silverlight API, etc., a definition query can be used to display groupings of images. Example definition query to view all the BAGs for a single NOS survey H12003 off Maryland/Virginia: "Name LIKE 'H12003%'". search

1 https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/bathymetry/hydro.html NOS Hydrographic Survey Data Home Page Home page for digitized data from smooth sheets of hydrographic surveys completed between 1837 and 1965, and from survey data acquired digitally on NOS survey vessels since 1965. Over 76 million soundings from over 6,600 surveys are included. NGDC has developed an interactive map and data discovery tool, the Bathymetry Map Service, and a text-based search engine, the Hydrographic Survey Text Search, which enable rapid data discovery and download. information
