Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database
The Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database, offering complete, homogeneous and up to date Baltic Sea bathymetry data from official sources, has been developed as part of the EU TEN-T project MONALISA (Motorways & Electronic Navigation by Intelligence at Sea).
The Swedish Maritime Administration has acted as lead partner and the development has also received funding from the Swedish Government.
Information has been sourced from all Baltic Sea national hydrographic offices under the umbrella of the Baltic Sea Hydrographic Commission.
The BSBD web site is developed to meet the requirements of maritime and environmental planning as well as scientific research. There are several fields of application where bathymetry data is needed, such as climate modelling, geological research, wind craft planning and habitat mapping, etc. The compiled bathymetry model has a resolution of 500m, featuring more than ten times as many data points as the currently available homogenous models and more data is regularly being added to the model.
Measuring bathymetry is mostly a national duty for each country, primarily because the production of nautical charts lies within each state’s responsibility. Many applications span over country borders, hence requiring a level of detail in bathymetric data which cannot be supplied by conventional nautical charts.
