About GEBCO and Seabed 2030

GEBCO's aim is to provide the most authoritative publicly-available bathymetry of the world's oceans. Our latest bathymetric product is a global grid at 15 arc-second intervals. This is GEBCO's first product produced through the framework of the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 project.

Seabed 2030 is a collaborative project between the Nippon Foundation of Japan and GEBCO. It aims to bring together all available bathymetric data to produce the definitive map of the world ocean floor by 2030 and make it available to all. Find out more and get involved.
