New bathymetry dataset offers easier access

Geoscience Australia has released a new multibeam bathymetry dataset that provides improved understanding about the topography and nature of the seafloor of offshore Australia, an area which for the most part remains poorly mapped.

The 50m Multibeam Dataset of Australia 2012 is a tiled compilation of the entire multibeam dataset held by Geoscience Australia, including all data lying within the outer edge of the offshore area of Australia, as well as some data in international waters, as at August 2012.

“As national co-custodian of this extensive multibeam dataset, we hope this new accessibility will facilitate the use of bathymetry data in the wider mapping community,” said Dr Bruce Goleby, Group Leader of Innovation and Specialists Services at Geoscience Australia.
