Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database Working Group

Responsible for

The Baltic Sea Bathymetry Database (BSBD) is an effort to, in one place, gather and distribute bathymetry for the areas of all Baltic Sea countries.

Measuring bathymetry is mostly a national duty for each country, primarily because the production of nautical charts lies within each state’s responsibility. But many use cases span over country borders.

The portal offers free, homogeneous Baltic Sea bathymetry data from “official” sources: All Baltic Sea national hydrographic offices under the umbrella of the Baltic Sea Hydrographic Commission.

OGC services for downloads or use of the bathymetric models as background in GIS systems is also provided.
