Pentland Firth Bathymetric Geodatabase
Following the creation of the Pentland Firth Bathymetric Dataset, Marine Scotland Science have converted the data into a geodatabase. This allows for the data to be queried using standard SQL commands. It can also be plotted in ArcGIS as a normal geospatial layer. The Geodatabases provide regional guidance to assist developers involved in identifying suitable sites for localised survey work in support of site specific developments. The parameters available to assist in the identification of sites are depth of water, seabed slope and distance offshore.
