The From Depths toolset lets you export Bathymetric Information System (BIS) depth features to ASCII. This allows you to use the depths data in non-GIS systems.
Exports a depth point feature class to an ASCII text file. You can use the ASCII text file for working with depth information in non-GIS systems. Depth point features exported to an ASCII text file will contain the X, Y, and Z locations for each point feature. If a Bathymetric Attribute Grid (BAG) is used in the creation of the Depth feature, the Total Propagated Uncertainty (TPU) value will also be written to the depth feature and exported to the ASCII text file.
