Free software is available to view and access data from GEBCO's gridded bathymetric data sets. It provides the means for displaying the data and accessing the data in netCDF and simple ASCII formats.
Please note that the software is designed for use with the complete, global grid files. It will not work with subsets of the full global data sets.
The software has been developed to run on a PC running Microsoft Windows 95 or later. It is controlled by a series of drop-down menus and toolbar buttons.
Version 2.13 of the software was released in April 2010. It includes the option to export the gridded data in ASCII form for conversion to an ESRI raster file.
Find out more about the software and how to access it from the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC).
For UNIX operating system users, the netCDF file is compatible with the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) system.
