Hi all, I have a research team I'm working with that's looking for detailed bathymetric data for world ports. Do you know of any good reasources?


They need depths of bottom inside the port or harbor and most global bethymetric data sets are too coarse for that kind if near shore work. In the US they may be able to use NOAA ENC charts to get better detail but they also need data for other non US ports as well (study is targeting 180 or so of the largest ports around the world). There must be soemthing like the NOAA ENC charts for non US ports? Or any commercially avaibale GIS data for harbors and shipping?
