GIS Mapping w/River Bottom Data (Most recent bathymetry)

Description

There are 3 chart books. One has the entire system and the other two are just the Upper section above Demopolis and the Lower section below Demopolis. So, from Mobile, AL and the Gulf of Mexico, up the Mobile River to the confluence of the Alabama at mile 45, the Black Warrior/Tombigbee Rivers (BWT) continue to Demopolis where it forks off on the Tombigbee to eventually tie into the Tennessee (these chart books do not cover this part of the Tombigbee), and the Black Warrior River to the head of navigation above Birmingham, Ala, and being fed by the Locust and Mulberry Forks. Charts portray all the feature information as in the Inland Electronic Navigation Charts, including Bridge Profiles, Elevated Clearance Tables, and a Recommended Sailing Line.

There are 4 IENC Charts that have the same information as above only they do not have imagery. Also, the IENC can be loaded as a real time chart into certain software. To download IENC Charts and to find a viewer, click on the link below to visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Geospatial Center.
