In addition, the orthophoto of the Salt Pond/Nauset Marsh area is available as a TIFF with accompanying word file. The image alone can be viewed by a variety of software packages, but in order to view it as a georeferenced image, software - such as ESRI products or other GIS software - capable of reading the georeference information is required.

Tabular data:

These data are contained in Excel spreadsheet files as well as comma-delimited text files (csv files) appropriate to be used as relate tables in ArcGIS. The csv files can be opened with any text editor, while the Excel spreadsheet files require software capable of opening an XLS file.

Individual Geoprobe data collection sheets, in addition to being available within an Excel spreadsheet, are also available as PDFs. The Adobe Acrobat Reader can be used to view these files, and can be freely downloaded from Adobe Systems Incorporated.
