Description:
Abstract:
These data were created from a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) 3 arc-second (~90 meter) coastal relief model bathymetry layer to show the 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60-meter isobaths.
Purpose:
These data were created to illustrate 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60-meter isobaths.

Process_Description:
The ArcGIS Spatial Analyst Contour List tool was used to extract the 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60-meter isobaths from the NGDC Coastal Relief Model bathymetry raster. The contour lines were then dissolved based on the contour value field.
