[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) has the statutory mandate to collect hydrographic data in support
of nautical chart compilation for safe navigation and to provide
background data for engineers, scientific, and other commercial and
industrial activities. Hydrographic survey data primarily consist of
water depths, but may also include features (e.g. rocks, wrecks),
navigation aids, shoreline identification, and bottom type information.
NOAA is responsible for archiving and distributing the source data as
described in this metadata record.


Purpose: These hydrographic data are made available to the
public for a wide variety of uses, such as sea-bottom characterization,
habitat classification, coastal studies, boundary issues, and tsunami
forecasting. These data are not intended to be used for navigation.
Nautical charts produced and certified by NOAA should be used for
navigation purposes.

Use Constraints
While every effort has been made to ensure that these data are accurate and reliable within the limits of the current state of the art, NOAA cannot assume liability for any damages caused by any errors or omissions in the data, nor as a result of the failure of the data to function on a particular system. NOAA makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor does the fact of distribution constitute such a warranty.

Not to be used for navigation. Although these data are of high quality and useful for planning and modeling purposes, they are not suitable for navigation. For navigation, please refer to the NOS nautical chart series.

These data are considered raw and have not been subjected to the NOAA's quality control or quality assurance procedures. They are released for limited public use as preliminary data to be used only with appropriate caution. NOAA cannot assume liability for any damages caused by any errors or omissions in the data, nor as a result of the failure of the data to function on a particular system.
