Unless you have a futuristic, hi-tech submersible or live in a pineapple under the sea, you’ll never know the sweeping, majestic beauty of underwater mountains thta overlook deep, abyssmal trenches. The crew over at Below the Boat use lasercut birch wood to construct these bathymetric charts, assembling the entire map one intricately detailed layer at a time. Whether you’re an admirer of the Great Lakes or a Florida Keys fanboy, you can purchase your favorite sculpted body of water over at their website: belowtheboat
Wow, talk about interactive maps! These gorgeous bathymetric charts show a topographic view and relationship between land and water. The 3 dimensional surface gives life to your typical flat map and gives you a sense of the vastness not only in width of the world but in depth and proportion. Design by Below The Boat in collaboration with East Coast West Coast and Interior Lakes.
