GIS Lookup: Detailed Data Layer Listing

Title: "ESRI: World Topography and Bathymetry" (2004)
 
Description: World Topography and Bathymetry represents a color hillshaded Digital Elevation Model (DEM) based image of all continents and ocean beds of the world. The hillshading effect (illumination from azimuth of 315 degrees, or northwest) provides the appearance of three dimensions (also know as 2.5 D). The data set is in MrSID® format to minimize the file size. World Topography and Bathymetry provides a base map layer displaying global color shaded relief of topography and bathymetry.
