Supplemental information

[2017-03-28] Two sighting records were updated with more accurate species identification:
2011-10-25 11:40 Ziphius to Ziphius cavirostris
2012-01-31 10:42 Ziphius to Ziphius cavirostris

[2014-03-18] Sperm whale sightings were assigned an invalid scientific name (P. catodon). It is corrected to P. macrocephalus.

The original survey data are separated into two datasets, from left-side and right-side observers upon provider's request. This dataset is from the left side sightings data. The right side sightings data are available on OBIS-SEAMAP in the USWTR Hatteras Aerial Survey -Right side- 2011-2012 dataset.
