Bathymetric data products

BASE Platform provides bathymetric data from crowd sourced and remotely sensed technologies.

Data from different sensing techniques (Optical, Synthetic Aperture Radar and Altimetry satellites) and crowd sourced data collection will be provided, each having complementary characteristics and applicable depth ranges.
