Take a deep dive

This map showcases the exotic bottom features of the North Atlantic Ocean, including  abyssal plains, banks, canyons, seamounts, trenches, and the scar-like Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Above the waves, the map offers select coastal cities for reference.

Blue Earth Bathymetry is the source of all topography shown on the map. It is an edited version of the GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) dataset. The 3D topography, rendered as plan oblique relief, depicts undersea features in partial profile with 1,100 percent vertical exaggeration.

Mapped terrestrial areas derive from Natural Earth vector and raster data. The GEBCO Gazetteer of Undersea Feature Names was the source for ocean bottom labels.

The map is in the public domain and available free of charge. I hope that you will find it informative.
