Overlaying bathymetric contours

Please note that the GEBCO Digital Atlas and Software Interface are no longer available.

The image shows bathymetric contours from the GEBCO Digital Atlas (GDA) overlain on the GEBCO One Minute Grid. Through the GDA software interface, the user can set the colour of the overlay contours and select the bathymetric contours levels displayed from a list of those available.

Land (grid cells greater than or equal to 0 m) may be shown as a user-specified solid colour or graduated colours to show relief. Land elevation is displayed in a single colour in this example.
