Understanding the spatial extent of existing data, even if it cannot yet be shared, is critical so our global network of partners can optimize the use of sea-going assets to efficiently map the gaps.
Acquire transit/Passage data
Transit or passage data can fill critical gaps in coverage. If we could harness the mapping capabilities of all vessels globally, we can meet our objectives more quickly.
Share existing data
With so little of the ocean mapped, any existing data can help complete the map. The GEBCO global map already combines data from a variety of sources and instruments (eg: single beam, multibeam, ENCs, seismically derived data, satellite altimetry, LIDAR, etc). Regardless of what instrument was used, spatial resolution, age or format – your data can help!
