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 "http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/etopo5.HTML". The ETOPO5 data set is superseded by the ETOPO2 2-minute data set (see "http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/fliers/01mgg04.html" )
