Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database

Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database OGC Services

The Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database Working Group (BSBDWG) has created and manages a harmonized bathymetric dataset for the Baltic Sea region. This dataset is also the regional input to the EMODNET Bathymetry Portal. In its present version the dataset consists of a 500 m grid. There are ongoing discussions in the working group to create a higher density grid.
The dataset is presented in a web application which also has some additional services and functionality such as a download service and a profile tool. The website also provides bathymetry geodata as a view service (Web Map Service, WMS) and a coverage service (Web Coverage Service, WCS) for use in a GIS tool capable of handling WMS or WCS.

Helcom Re-survey Scheme database

Within HELCOM activities BSHC is committed to provide hydrographic bathymetric surveys to ensure good quality data for navigational purposes. The Baltic Sea Helcom Re-survey Scheme Monitoring Working Group (MWG) has developed and continues to maintain a re-survey scheme and monitors the progress regarding hydrographic surveys. The survey areas are divided into three categories where category I and II are the primary areas of interest for maritime shipping. The planned survey scheme and the progress with the hydrographic surveys is recorded in a database developed by MWG and each BSHC member nation maintains the data within its own area of interest
