After charging your topography, convert file into gher format (Diva user guide 2008) :

1/ With Diva, edit text file et delete metadata, and rename the file into topo.gebco in diva/divastripped/input, then launch gebco2diva in command line.

2/ With Matlab, define, in the path of Matlab the directory of diva_topo_gebco. The most of time it is in ../diva/src/Matlab/CL. In your Matlab directory, find the file 'startup.m' and edit it.


Then use diva_topo_gebco.m on the file untitle topo.gebco.

Be careful 
Don't delete metadata.
