NOAA/PIBHMC 5-m Bathymetry: CNMI: Saipan: Hillshade

Metadata Updated: December 8, 2023

A 5-m resolution gridded digital elevation model (DEM) grayscale hillshade for the bathymetry (ocean depth) surrounding the island of Saipan in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) compiled from ship-borne multibeam sonar surveys merged with coastal bathymetry derived from multipectral WorldView-2 (WV-2) satellite data and aerial LiDAR data. Almost complete bottom coverage was achieved in depths between 0 and 600 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 the related dataset containing numeric bathymetry values for this image layer, see http://pacioos.org/metadata/pibhmc_bathy_5m_saipan.html
