This world ocean floor raised relief map features ridges, trenches, mountains, continental shelves, continental slopes and islands are all depicted in exceptional detail. Fully three-dimensional, these vacuum-formed vinyl maps use shaded relief to represent altitude gradation and topographic diversity. This raised relief map is based on an important work that was hand painted by Heinrich C. Berann based on the ocean floor mapping work of Marie Tharp and Bruce Heezen. Despite this celebrated map being originally published in 1977, it illustrates the landscape of the world's ocean floor with surprising accuracy. Ocean floor trenches, seamounts, continental shelves, and ridges are brought to life in exquisite detail. Landforms are shown with shaded relief and hypsometric tints. Depths are shown by land form drawings, shading, gradient tints, and soundings.
