What is GEBCO?

The goal of the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) project is to provide the most authoritative, publicly-available bathymetry for the world's oceans. Originally published in chart form, GEBCO is now maintained at BODC in the form of a digital atlas.

The GEBCO Digital Atlas (GDA)

The GDA contains the GEBCO One Minute Grid. It provides bathymetry data on a global grid with a one arc-minute spacing and a global set of digital bathymetric contours and coastlines. The data sets are accompanied by full documentation and interface software.
