Dear Civil Engineering and Development Department,

I would like to make a request for shapefile (.shp) of digital water depth data of Hong Kong SAR for academic purpose, as shown in the following public report:

https://www.epd.gov.hk/eia/register/repo...

Although the report mentioned that the original figure was published by Civil Engineering Department in 1999, I cannot find its digital version on CEDD's website.

The requested data will be used for academic purpose only. Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Te
