attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String A 5-m resolution gridded digital elevation model (DEM) for the bathymetry (ocean depth) surrounding Swains Island in American Samoa compiled from ship-borne multibeam sonar surveys merged with coastal bathymetry derived from multipectral WorldView-2 (WV-2) satellite data. Almost complete bottom coverage was achieved in depths between 3 and 383 m. Data collected by the Pacific Islands Benthic Habitat Mapping Center (PIBHMC) in support of NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program. Not to be used for navigational purposes. For a grayscale hillshade image layer of this dataset, see "as_pibhmc_swa_bathy5m_hillshade" in the distribution links listed in the metadata. For further details about this dataset, please see:
