Basic Information

Significance of the File

Provides information about a geoposition and optional the local amplitudes of the partial tides

File-Contents (in Catchwords)

  • Key of geoposition
  • Coordinate reference system as EPSG code (optional, recommended)
  • Gauß-Krüger coordinates of the geoposition
  • bathymetric depth of the geoposition
  • long name of the geoposition
  • shortcut of the geoposition

The inclusion of the coordinate reference system leads to automatic transformation of the coordinates into the coordinate reference system given by the environment variable BAWCRS, if specified, when file is read through the subroutines listed below or by GEOTRANSFORMER.

This general information is followed by the keyword ENDFILE or END_GENERAL. This keyword indicates that the part with general information is finished .

The following (optional) part contains the tidal amplitudes an begins with BEGIN_TIDES:

  • reference time zone of the phases (optional, default is GMT)
  • tide amplitude A_0 (constant part of the tidal signal)
  • keys and related tidal amplitudes and local phase shifts of the partial tides

This part is closed by the keyword END_TIDES.
