Completing the puzzle for seabed maps
The GMRT-AusSeabed project will enable users to create their own seamless seabed maps using AusSeabed datasets. Through a cloud-based platform, users will be able to select, prioritise and merge available datasets together to then grid them at their preferred resolution (data allowing). The project will deliver a prototype platform in June 2022 that will focus on bathymetry data, but will seed future AusSeabed activities.

The project has three components:
- A community survey to ensure we develop the platform end-users want.
- Engaged over 800 individuals and based on 95 responses.
- Summary of results published in the report below.
- GMRT-Auseabed PL019 User Need Survey Summary
- A diverse collection of bathymetry datasets in a test region of the Bass Strait
- Used in the development and testing of the platform, as well as in improving best-practices for data collection and management.
- Openly accessible on the AusSeabed Marine Data Portal
- A prototype built from existing technology called the Global Multi-Resolution Topography synthesis, developed by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observation group (link to GMRT).
- Enables users to create their own seabed maps according to their needs.
- Linked to the AusSeabed Data Hub.
