Other Data

 

As well as our core data types the Plymouth Coastal Observatory also holds various other datasets. These include historic datasets given to us for use in our analysis and data shared with us by our Partners as well as data and reports collected by the Programme.

 

Airborne Bathymetry

The Programme has been trialling airborne bathymetry and in 2015 collected a seamless topographic and bathymetric dataset of the Isles of Scilly. A by-product of this data collection was very high resolution (5cm) aerial photography which we were also able to obtain for the Programme.
