BODC announce the launch of two software products. These software products are intended to aid the display, analysis and access of data. They are available to download from the BODC web site, under a licence agreement.

Available software products

  • GEBCO Grid display — this allows you to view and access data from the GEBCO One Minute Grid — a global bathymetric grid with one arc-minute spacing. The software is designed for users who have downloaded the GEBCO One Minute Grid and will operate under Microsoft Windows 95 or later.
  • Echo-Sounding Correction Tables — a digital version, incorporating FORTRAN software and accompanying data files, which may be used to correct echo-soundings for the variation of the speed of sound in sea water. These are distributed on behalf the UK Hydrographic Office who first published them in 1980. The tables are sometimes referred to as Carter's Tables.

In keeping with our strategy to enhance access to our data holdings, more software products will be made available in the future.
