Side scan mosaic of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary in Washington State

Olympic-NMS---Sidescan.gifThis image was generated by compiling data sets from NOAA’s mapping efforts in the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. The data sets are exceptionally detailed and can be used to view geology and objects as small as 5’ in length.

ESRI’s ArcGIS software is being used to view data sets.  This same technique is being used to compile datasets of the Puget Sound and Lake Washington.  Our team is rapidly compiling data from several organizations who have generously made their work available and integrating this data with our own side scan mapping.
