Overview

This datalayer represents bathymetry data - seafloor topography - for ocean waters off the coast of Massachusetts.  The layer was created by EOEA Coastal Zone Management analysts for graphic display purposes only and is general in nature; it should not be used for navigation.  Polygons were delineated from a 1:250,000 USGS regional map. Ocean depth measurements are in meters.  The dataset is stored in ArcSDE as BTHOS250_POLY.
