Bass Strait Depth Zone Polygons at 1:250,000

BATHYMETRY_BASS_STRAIT_POLY is a 1:250,000 polygon layer which represents subtidal relief (bathymetry). This layer will serve as a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) until more depth data can be obtained from which DTMs can be generated using automated techniques. Common uses for depth zone information include comparative analysis with fisheries catch data and representing the movement of commercial species in three dimensions. The depth information contained within this layer should not be used for navigation purposes. Vertical datum is mean sea level. The 10 metre contour and 0-10 m depth zone were interpolated by DPI Queenscliff (formerly MAFRI) using the coastline and the 20 metre contour.
