Please note: Due to a system outage, many NCEI systems are currently unavailable. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
NCEI and the IHO Data Center for Digital Bathymetry (DCDB) archive and share depth data acquired by hydrographic, oceanographic, and industry vessels and platforms during surveys or while on passage. These data, which are used in several national and international mapping bathymetry projects, are free to the public with no restrictions.
To submit bathymetric data to the archive, please review our instructions for contributing data. Contact email@example.com for more information.
This interactive map gives access to combined bathymetric and topographic data, including the ETOPO Global Relief Model.
Use this application to create grids and maps from multibeam bathymetric data.
Use the IHO DCDB Bathymetric Data Viewer to access DCDB's bathymetric data holdings, as well as the spatial extent of data archived at other repositories.
Browse the NCEI archive via a text search interface for water column sonar, multibeam bathymetry, trackline geophysical and National Ocean Service (NOS) hydrographic data.
Use this interactive map to search and access bathymetric data, including multibeam, singlebeam, lidar, and crowdsourced bathymetry data.
