i'm from Lebanon, i have a thesis about fish wealth and fishing.
my question is: do i need the ARCGIS for maritime Bathymetry  or charting, or even the ARCGIS for desktop is enough?

and how to convert a jpeg to raster to use it via mapinfo ?
an which website can i get bathymetric maps for free?
thank you
