Summary
Abstract: NGDC manages a wide variety of geophysical data including trackline and survey data as two distinct types. Multibeam data tend to bridge these data models depending on scale and track pattern. One of NGDC's geophysical data holdings is the MBBDB system which has been assembled as an online data base using existing Commercial and Government Off-The-Shelf (COTS and GOTS) software systems: ORACLE, ArcGIS, Generic Mapping Tools (GMT), MB-System, and Autochart. The MBBDB is a world wide compilation of mulitbeam bathymetric data.

Purpose: The intent of the MBBDB is to make high-resolution bathymetry available to the public for a wide variety of uses such as research and earth science analysis. NGDC established the MBBDB to provide a comprehensive multibeam bathymetric data base of the world. NOTE: These data are NOT to be used for navigation.
