Merged echo sounder data

The dataset is a point shape file obtained from merging echo sounder data (FK-UNITY-535) collected through an ad-hoc survey and point data extracted from a bathymetry model provided by Pisco (the model has 90 metres resolution). The had-hoc survey had been commissioned by PISCO Group with the intention of gathering high resolution bathymetry data for potential development sites for aquaculture.

Lineage Echosounder point data and point depth data extracted from a bathymetry model have been merged to generrate a new dataset. In the site of interest for aquaculture purposes, the point depth data obtained from the model have been deleted. The buffer of 400 metres (FK-PISCO-535), representing the footprint of the site of interest, has been used to select the points and consequently delete them. The echo sounder points have been copied from FK-PISCO-534) and pasted. The depth value of the echo sounder data has been changed to allow for a negative sign and to make it consistent with the rest of the points coming from the bathyetry model.
