Timely and up-to-date bathymetry maps over large geographical areas have been difficult to create, due to the cost and difficulty of collecting in situ calibration and validation data. Recently, combinations of spaceborne ICESat-2 lidar data and Landsat/Sentinel-2 data have reduced these obstacles. However, to date there have been no means of automatically extracting bathymetry photons from ICESat-2 tracks for model calibration/validation and no well established open source workflows for generating regional scale bathymetric models.
