2.6 Accuracy Check for GEBCO Depth Contours

New Version of Saga:  Usually a new version of Saga is quickly assimilated into these exercises.  The latest release, Version 2.1.2, is so radically different that it will take some time to catch up with revised exercises.  Please email me immediately whenever you find an old exercise that simply cannot be accomplished in the new Saga, due to big changes in the properties, etc.  I will try to provide fixes within about 2 days.

  • Exercise Title:  Accuracy Check for GEBCO Depth Contours

  • Author:  Murray Brown

  • Version:  February 2013

Make a Saga map with the GEBCO depth contours you extracted from the DVD.  Plot the graticule on top of these contours, and they should match exactly.
