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.

    1 Bathymetry Attributed Grid (BAG) Bathymetric Attributed Grid (BAG) is a non-proprietary file format for storing and exchanging bathymetric data developed by the Open Navigation Surface Working Group. BAG files are gridded, multi-dimensional bathymetric data files and is the standard NOS hydrographic data file for public release.
    1 Generic Sensor Format (GSF)
    1 Geospatial Portable Document Format (GeoImage) Geospatial Portable Document Format (GeoImage) is a layered geospatial PDF. This image file contains several layers including: a combined bathymetric surface, a survey scale set of soundings, a large scale raster nautical chart, latitude/longitude graticule, title block, and an acoustic imagery mosaic (if available). The image is also geographically referenced, allowing users to locate features, measure distances and angles, and select specific layers of interest

    1 Backscatter The seafloor backscatter is defined as the amount of acoustic energy being received by the sonar after a complex interaction with the seafloor. This information can be used to determine bottom type, because different bottom types ???scatter??? sound energy differently.
    1 Bathymetry Bathymetry is the study of the "beds" or "floors" of water bodies, including the ocean, rivers, streams, and lakes.
    1 Lidar LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. These light pulses???combined with other data recorded by the airborne system??? generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the Earth and its surface characteristics.
    1 Side Scan Side scan sonar is a specialized system for detecting objects on the seafloor. Sonar (sound navigation and ranging) uses sound waves to find and identify objects in the water and determine water depth.
