Description:
Abstract:
This data layer contains the outline and extent of the individual 36 West Coast COW (California, Oregon and Washington) GLORIA sidescan sonar mosaics collected and digitally mosaicked during 1984 field activities.
Purpose:
These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public. The data can be used with geographic informationsystems (GIS) software to display geologic and oceanographic information.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Individual polygons were drawn around the extent of each of the 36 individual mosaics used to compile the 250 m COW GLORIA composite mosaic. Boundaries were checked against the georeference reports to verify the boundaries. When complete the polygons were completed, the attribute mosaic was added and the individual mosaics were numbered. The final vector data layer was exported from the PCI Remote Sensing file in shapefile format.
