New WMS layers for polar regions
WMS layers showing the bathymetry of the Arctic and Southern Ocean areas are now available. The WMS includes layers showing the terrain of the regions as shaded relief and as a 'flat map' images, colour-coded for elevation. Layers showing ice surface and sub-ice topography are also included.
Arctic Ocean region
The data for this region are taken from version 4.2 of the International Bathymetric Chart of the Arctic Ocean (IBCAO) and included as a regional compilation in the GEBCO_2022 grid. The WMS provides layers displayed in WGS 84 / IBCAO Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG:3996).
Southern Ocean region
This data set was developed as part of version 2.0 of the International Bathymetric Chart of the Southern Ocean (IBCSO) and included as a regional compilation in the GEBCO_2022 grid.
The WMS provides layers displayed in WGS 84/ IBCSO Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 9354).
