Data Types

Shaded relief map of West of LewisMarine Scotland Science collects a wide variety of marine environmental data, such as echosounding techniques and video ground-truthing to map the seabed.

As such we have divided the data according to data types, such as seabed bathymetry, seabed video and camera footage, etc. More will be available in due course. The data types pages are subdivided into themes and by survey area.
