Data Format Specifications

MB-System supports a large number of data formats used to store bathymetry and backscatter imagery data derived from multibeam, interferometry, and sidescan sonars. Many of these data formats were created by sonar vendors or software developers who make documentation available to the community. This section provides links to data format specification documents that we have permission to redistribute or are available on other sites. The MB-System team and its supporting institutions and funding agencies make no claim regarding the accuracy or usefulness of these documents.
