Murky Waters: Unmapped Areas of Seafloor

Nov 2020

Part of the 30 Day Map Challenge 2020 – Day 19.

Only 20% of the Earth's seafloor has been mapped in detail. This map shows the areas that the Seabed 2030 project has yet to map.

This map also makes use of the excellent Spilhaus projection (often dubbed as the favoured projection of fish), which focuses the reader on the oceans of our planet.
