Zipped data files contain 1) grid data file (NetCDF/GMT, GeoTIFF, or ASCII), 2) high-res JPG of image, and 3) explanatory metadata text file (identical to linked file listed below). Study area grids are named for the island location, the type of sensor used for data acquisition, the chart box number, and the grid resolution in meters.

The boxes on the map represent charts used to grid subsets of the backscatter data into manageable file sizes. The box labels correspond to the 1 meter NetCDF grids and GeoTIFFs that are available for download in the pull down menus. To create a map of the entire backscatter dataset, all charts must be downloaded and the data must be mosaicked.
