Service Description: Bathymetry is the measurement of the depth of the ocean floor, data that can be used for a variety of purposes such as: nautical charting, oceanographic research and modeling, habitat classification, maritime commerce, and recreational applications. The Multibeam Bathymetry Database (MBBDB) at NCEI collects and archives multibeam data from the earliest commercial installations (circa 1980) through today's modern high-resolution collections. Data are acquired from both U.S. and international government and academic sources (see individual cruise metadata records for source information) and consist of the raw (as collected) sonar data files. Datasets may also include processed or edited versions of the sonar data, ancillary data (i.e., sound velocity data), derived products (i.e., grids), and/or metadata for the data collection. The MBBDB provides data that span the globe and are discoverable and accessible via map interface or text-only search options. More information about the database can be found here.

This map service shows ship tracks for multibeam bathymetric surveys archived at NCEI. Attributes are available such as platform name, survey start/end dates, source organization, and links to metadata and data download pages.

Note: This is a tile layer, visible from global scales to zoom level 10 (approx. 1:577,000 scale). The corresponding dynamic map service draws at all scales, and allows filtering.

NCEI's Bathymetric Data Viewer (NOAA GeoPlatform entry) provides an interactive mapping interface to the multibeam database as well as other sources of bathymetric data.

In addition to this service showing the ship tracks, there are also three image services providing access to the gridded multibeam data:Metadata for the Multibeam Bathymetric Database
