A map of the Gulf of Mexico with topography and bathymetry as seen from space. It has national borders, state borders and a 5° latitude and longitude grid. The land imagery is based on data collected by NASA’s MODIS satellite instrumentation in August 2004. Ocean bathymetry is derived from GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans), 2003. A great number of physical features can be distinguished, not least the Mississippi delta.
