This dataset is a broadscale biotope map of Plymouth Sound. This map was produced as a result of a broad scale mapping survey of Plymouth Sound carried out in July 1996. A data review was also carried out in this study. Mapping was carried out using acoustic techniques, validated by dive and remote survey. Predictive maps of biotopes were prepared with GIS.
