- These images are a georeferenced hydrographic compilation smooth sheets (H-sheets), most of which were created by the U.S. Coast Survey. The National Ocean Service, Silver Spring, MD, which archives the original (paper) H-sheets, provided the film negatives scanned to produce these images. Purpose: These hydrographic "compilation smooth sheets," or H-sheets, display the full array of point depths, interpreted depth contours, and bottom conditions collected by field parties. H-sheets (along with corresponding topographic maps, or T-sheets) were tools used in the creation of nautical charts. ( en )
