Updated GEBCO grid display software

Viewing bathymetry data for part of the Indian Ocean.Version 2.11 of the free software for viewing and accessing data from GEBCO’s gridded bathymetric data sets is now available.

The software provides the means for displaying the data and accessing the data in simple ASCII formats as well as netCDF. It has been developed to run on a PC running Microsoft Windows 95 or later and is controlled by a series of drop-down menus and toolbar buttons.

This release supersedes version 2.0, published in February 2009 and includes the following updates

  • The option to export data from the GEBCO gridded bathymetric data sets in an ASCII form suitable for conversion (using ESRI data conversion software) to a raster file for use with ESRI ArcGIS products.
  • The software has been updated to work with read-only versions of the source data files. This has proved useful in some cases where the software is used over a network.
  • Export of the One Minute Grid failed if the southernmost latitude of the selected area equalled 90°S – this bug has now been fixed.
