We introduce a new bathymetric compilation of the area around South Georgia in the Southern Ocean. Using a variety of data sources including multi and single-beam swath bathymetry we have constructed a gridded bathymetric dataset of the shelf and near-shelf sea-floor areas. The grid has been constructed using a layered hierarchy dependent upon accuracy of each dataset. The spikes and errors have been checked both manually and with a novel semi-automated process. We discuss the resulting bathymetry and the potential uses of the new dataset
