Digital Bathymetric Data Base 5-minute (DBDB5) from the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO)
Entry ID: DBDB5

Abstract: The "Digital Bathymetric Data Base 5 minute" (DBDB5) was assembled by the US
Naval Oceanographic Office in the early 1980's from computer interpolation of
existing contour maps of ocean basins. It is included in ETOPO2 to fill in a
few areas in the Antarctic that are too for south to be covered by the
satellite-based bathymetry. Along with several land data bases, DBDB5 was
incorporated into a full worldwide 5 minute elevation grid, called ETOPO5.

For more information about the ETOPO5 5-minute gridded elevation data see The ETOPO5 data set is
superseded by the ETOPO2 2-minute data set (see )
