World Ocean Atlas 2009


This page provides datasets for use with the Ocean Data View software. The datasets are platform-independent and can be used on any supported system (Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X). To install a dataset, download the zipped data file to the base directory of your ODV data and unzip the file. During unzipping make sure you restore the directory structure stored in the zip-file (e.g., use "unzip <file-name>" or "pkunzip -d <file-name>", etc.). Open the data collection with Ocean Data View.


NOTE: ODV 4.3 or later is required to use this data collection. Previous ODV versions will not work.
