The GEBCO world map shows the shape and depth of the global ocean floor as a shaded relief map. The latest release of the map is available to download in PDF and GeoTiff forms.

The map image (72N-72S) is now included in Google's Maps Gallery for display in Google Earth.

This is the third release of the GEBCO world map and now includes the names of features on the sea floor from the IHO-IOC GEBCO Gazetteer of Undersea Feature Names.

The bathymetry data is based on the GEBCO_08 Grid, a global terrain model at 30 arc-second intervals. Land imagery is taken from the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Blue Marble data set.
