The data was acquired from Special Area of Conservation mapping in 2001. Data was acquired to aid the designation of a Special Area of Conservation in Roaringwater Bay. Data created from the interpretation of single-beam echosounder backscatter data. Data was collected by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
