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:

Data subset

  • 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

GMRT-AusSeabed platform

  • 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.
  • GMRT AusSeabed PL019 Workshop-1
  • GMRT AusSeabed PL019 Workshop-2
