GDA Software Interface version 2.12 released

Version 2.12 of GEBCO Digital Atlas (GDA) software interface has been released. This supersedes previous versions and is available for download by existing GDA users, along with instructions on how to install and use the software.

The GDA is a reference source for the bathymetry of the world's oceans. It contains a global set of digital bathymetric contours, coastlines and gridded bathymetric data sets. It is accompanied by a software interface, which allows the user to display, query and export data from the various GDA data sets.

Version 2.12 of the software interface includes the following additional features

  • view and access data from both GEBCO gridded bathymetric data sets, the GEBCO One Minute Grid and GEBCO_08 Grid
  • export the gridded data in an ASCII format suitable for conversion to an ESRI raster file using ESRI data conversion software

The GDA is currently distributed on CDROM and does not include the GEBCO_08 Grid. An updated DVD product is planned for release shortly to include both gridded data sets.
