Summary
Abstract: A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of Newcomb Bay, Windmill Islands
and terrestrial and bathymetric contours derived from the DEM.
The data is stored in a UTM zone 49(WGS-84) projection.
Heights are referenced to mean sea level.
It was created by interpolation of point data using Kriging. The input point data comprised soundings and terrestrial contour vertices. THE DATA IS NOT FOR NAVIGATION PURPOSES.

Quality The majority of input data for the Newcomb_bay DEM was derived from the casey_approaches(RAN) dataset, digitised from RAN FairSheets. The vertical datum of the RAN soundings is LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide). The depths were converted to depths below MSL (Mean Sea Level) vertical datum by adding 0.9 m. This adjustment is given in Section 9 of the report 'Approaches to Casey Station, 15 December ... View entire text
Access Constraints The DEM is stored as an ESRI grid, a dem.asc - Arc/Info GridASCII format (Grid) and dem.e00 - Arc/Info export format (Grid).

The contour and bathymetry contour data are stored in esri shapefile format.
