The multibeam raw data has been cleaned, quality assured and processed using Fledermaus Pro (DMagic, Fledermaus and FMGT). Data products include a bathymetric grid (60 m resolution in WGS84), and a backscatter image based on the raw data (50 m resolution in WGS84).

Data acquisition was performed using a multibeam sonar system Simrad EM-122 from Kongsberg. Raw data are delivered within Simrad current multibeam vendor format. SIMRAD raw data can be processed i.e. with the software packages CARIS HIPS/SIPS, Caraibes, QPS Qimera or with the open source software package MB-System (
