    3. informations about the 3D-location of the data
    4. coordinates (x,y) of the location
    5. informations about the data set
    6. informations about the origin of the data
    7. number and type-codes for the physical quantities stored in the file
    8. signature of the responsible project engineer

If profile data for a specific profile are stored:

  1. data which can be read by ACE/gr
    1. profile-km, Gauß-Krüger coordinates, bathymetric depth and data are stored for each location along the profile
  2. additional informations, which cannot be read by ACE/gr
    1. informations about the study area
