Pentland Firth Bathymetric Geodatabase

doi: 
10.7489/1679-1

Following the creation of the Pentland Firth Bathymetric Dataset, Marine Scotland Science have converted the data into a geodatabase. This allows for the data to be queried using standard SQL commands. It can also be plotted in ArcGIS as a normal geospatial layer. The Geodatabases provide regional guidance to assist developers involved in identifying suitable sites for localised survey work in support of site specific developments. The parameters available to assist in the identification of sites are depth of water, seabed slope and distance offshore.

Data Dictionary

The bathymetric dataset raster is reclassified to produce a coded value for various thresholds within the data. Primarily this has been done for slope angles and depth. These new classifications are converted to vector datasets and the resulting dataset is reproduced as a Geodatabase. This format can be read by ESRI GIS products. A PDF version is also provided.
