Processed echo sounder data in East Falkland

The dataset is a point shape file representing all data collected in late September at 21 locations (see FK-UNITY-530) in East Falklands. The work had been commissioned by PISCO Group with the intent of gathering high resolution bathymetry data for the potential development of acquaculture sites. The attribute table comprises values of depth, time, and hardness (E1 first echo, E2 second echo and PSV). The dataset has been processed (cleaned from erroneous data) and it has been derived from the raw data FK-UNITY-532
