(1979) and IBCAO (2000) Maps," http://www.
A CD-ROM of the GEBCO Digital Atlas (GDA) has recently been published by the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC).
Digitized bathymetric contours, coastlines, and trackline control from the GEBCO Fifth Edition published at a scale of 1:10 million
This DBM has been incorporated as the Arctic Ocean standard bathymetry in the global one-minute bathymetric grid assembled by GEBCO (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission et al.
To expedite the acquisition of bathymetric data, we recommend that all agencies collecting data in the Arctic liaise with IBCAO / GEBCO to:
2 Software, integrating the polygons determined by the latitudinal transects and isobaths obtained from the GEBCO
(General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) database (http://www.
Specifically, the GEBCO
topography data set and others we considered were characterized by topographic discontinuities within James Bay that appear to be a result of combining independent data sets.
Maps were produced with ArcView GIS system for Windows NT by ESRI, using digital coastline and bathymetry derived from the GEBCO
Digital Atlas (GEBCO
digital bathymetric software was used to produce 100 m contour interval bathymetric data for the study area.
