Multibeam data were collected during R/V Heincke cruise HE548. Data recording was executed during systemtic profiling in four areas in North Sea within German EEZ. Data are unprocessed and may contain outliers and blunders. Therefore the data should not directly be used for grid calculations and charting projects but need to be edited furthermore. One file contains a measurement period not exceeding ten minutes. The dataset consists of 1112 files in Kongsberg Simrad Multibeam Processing format (*.all) which are compressed with GZIP to size of 52.1 GB (77.4 GB uncompressed). Data files can be processed using the software packages CARIS HIPS/SIPS or with the open source software package MB-System (
