Lineage The echo sounder data (.slg files) were processed in ReefMaster 2.0 software, tidally corrected to Stanley Harbour using WXTide32.exe, and then exported as .csv files. These files were then reviewed and validated (erratic soundings due to water column bubbles removed) before being exported to a shapefile.
