Presentation of water depths worldwide
as depth contours, shaded and in colour.
We created a terrain model of the oceans using bathimetric data from GEBCO that also depicts the deep sea. You can view the water depths in the maps of OpenSeaMap directly and display or hide them in the menu "Ansicht" (view).
We would like to thank GEBCO very much for their excellent cooperation!
The people responsible for the realisation of this project are Martin Over (data preparation, rendering, coloured polygons, labelled depth contours, implementation, performance optimisation), Astrid Müller and Michael Auer (Sea-Shade), Werner Huth (graphic) and Alex Zipf (consulting).
The tile-based graphics are computed, hosted and delivered by the new server sponsored by KNF.
