GEBCO Grid display software v2.11 released

Version 2.11 of the GEBCO Grid display software is now available to download, free of charge under licence, for use with the GEBCO gridded bathymetric data sets. This release supersedes version 2.0, published in February 2009, and includes the following enhancements.
  • An option to export data from the GEBCO gridded bathymetric data sets in an ASCII form suitable for conversion (using ESRI data conversion software) to a raster file for use with ESRI ArcGIS products.
  • The ability to work with a read-only version of the source data file — this has proved useful in some cases where the software is used over a network.
  • A bug that caused the export of the GEBCO One Minute Grid to fail if the southernmost latitude of the selected area equalled 90°S has now been fixed.

The GEBCO Grid display software provides the means for displaying and accessing the data in simple ASCII formats as well as netCDF from
  • the GEBCO One Minute Grid — a global one arc-minute grid
  • the GEBCO_08 Grid — a global 30 arc-second grid

It has been developed by BODC to run on a PC running Microsoft Windows 95 or later and is controlled by a series of drop-down menus and toolbar buttons. Please note that the software is designed for use with the complete, global data files.
