Acoustic backscatter gridded data for the Lido inlet, Venice Lagoon, (2011 survey)
This high-resolution (0.5m resolution) gridded backscatter data set was collected during September and October 2011 in the Lido inlet (Venice Lagoon) using a Kongsberg Simrad EM 3002 MBES system. The operational frequency for this survey was set at 300 kHz. A Kongsberg Seatex Seapath 300 positioning system, with NRTK correction for the first part of the survey and with OMNISTAR Land corrections for the second part of the survey, was used for ship positioning. The data was collected aboard small boat MBN1206 of the Hydrographic Office of Italian Navy. The backscatter data was processed with the Fledermaus Geocoder Toolbox (FMGT) software. The data file is in the ESRI ASCII grid format, WGS-84, UTM zone 33N.
