Murky Waters: Unmapped Areas of Seafloor

Nov 2020

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

For this map, the intent was to bring to light data from a different and inverted perspective, revealing interesting patterns in seabed maps. By making use of the excellent Spilhaus projection (often dubbed as the favoured projection of fish!), the reader’s attention is drawn to the oceans – showing just how much we don’t know about what lies under the murky depths of our own planet.
