||Bathymetric Attributed Grid format
||A global, non-proprietary, open source exchange format created to facilitate the processing and storage of large volume multibeam sonar data. It is developed by the Open Navigation Surface Working Group.
||A variant of the ODV ASCII format to enable Data Centers to exchange biological (taxon-based) data using the SeaDataNet infrastructure. It contains all the elements required to allow conversion to the Darwin Core format and is therefore compatible with formats used by e.g. EMODNet Biology, (Eur)OBIS and GBIF.
||Climate and Forecast NetCDF
||SeaDataNet extension of the Climate and Forecast (http://www.cfconventions.org/) version 1.5 standard binary format with additional semantics embedded. Designed for gridded data.
||Climate and Forecast Point Data NetCDF
||SeaDataNet extension of the Climate and Forecast (http://www.cfconventions.org/) version 1.6 standard binary format for point data with additional semantics embedded. Designed for profiles, time series and trajectories.
||EMODnet Beach litter data format
||A standard data format in Excel formulated by EMODnet Chemistry in cooperation with TSG-ML and EU-JRC and derived from OSPAR/MCS guidelines and practices. It is used for reporting and classifying beach litter monitoring data. Excel variants are permitted.
||EMODnet Sea-floor litter data format
||A standard data format in excel formulated by EMODnet Chemistry in cooperation with TSG-ML and EU-JRC and derived from DATRAS- ICES Database of trawl surveys practices and guidelines for North and Western European seas and MEDITS practices and guidelines for the Mediterranean sea. It is used for reporting and classifying benthic litter monitoring data from fish trawl surveys. Excel variants are allowed.
||ESRI Shapefile Format
||A popular geospatial vector data format for geographic information system software developed and regulated by ESRI.
||Floating micro-litter ODV format
||A variant of the Biological ODV format to enable Data Centers to exchange floating microlitter data using the SeaDataNet infrastructure. It contains all the required elements to describe the floating microlitter observation.
||Georeferenced Tagged Image File Format
||A public domain metadata standard which allows georeferencing information to be embedded within a TIFF file. The potential additional information includes map projection, coordinate systems, ellipsoids, datums, and other attributes to establish the exact spatial reference for the file.
||There is no possible value for the data transport format, such as when a CDI record at some stage during its development cycle is not associated with a data file.
||SeaDataNet extension of the Mediterrannean community ASCII format with additional semantics embedded. Designed for profiles and point time series.
||Ocean Data View ASCII input
||SeaDataNet extension of the Ocean Data View ASCII upload format with additional semantics embedded. Designed for profiles and point time series. For taxon-based data and micro-litter data please use the specially designed ODV variants.
||Portable Network Graphics
||A standard bit-mapped image format employing lossless compression for the storage of images.
||Sediment micro-litter ODV format
||A variant of the ODV ASCII format to enable Data Centers to exchange microlitter in sediments data using the SeaDataNet infrastructure. It contains all the elements required to describe microlitter in sediments.
||Society of Exploration Geophysicists SEG Y
||A standard data format developed by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists for exchanging seismics data (http://www.seg.org/SEGportalWEBproject/prod/SEG-Publications/Pub-Technical-Standards/Documents/seg_ y_ rev1.pdf).
||Tagged Image File Format
||A standard format for the storage of images originally developed by Aldus, but under the control of Adobe Systems since 2009.
||United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association P1-90
||A standard format designed for raw marine positioning and ancillary data exchange widely used by industry especially for seismic surveys (http://www.epsg.org/Exchange/P1.pdf).
||XYZ comma separated format (longitude, latitude, depth), designed for gridded data from bathymetric surveys and Digital Terrain Models.
||eXtended Triton Format
||A Triton Imaging Incorporated file format for recording hydrographic survey data, widely used for sidescan sonar.
