Description:
Abstract:
This is a polygon GIS data layer showing the location and extent of various sidescan, multibeam and swath bathymetry surveys conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP). Outlines of individual mosaic areas were combined to create one comprehensive layer that could be used to illustrate areas surveyed by the USGS/CMGP seafloor mapping programs.
Purpose:
This shapefile may be used as a general basemap data layer to illustrate the extent and location of many USGS/CMGP seafloor mapping surveys.
Supplemental_Information:
Surveys that cross the international boundary have been divided into separate polygons.

Title: various USGS/CMGP mapping surveys
Type_of_Source_Media: disc
Source_Citation_Abbreviation: USGS/CMGP mapping surveys
Source_Contribution:
Information was compiled from a variety of sources. In most cases, sidescan sonar maps were outlined to create survey specific areal coverages. The individual coverages have been compiled to create one shapefile containing all the available survey extents.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The individual mosaic areas were combined to create one comprehensive layer that could be used to illustrate USGS/CMGP mapping surveys.
