GLOBE world map with bathymetry and city lights. Topographic world map combining GLOBE elevations with bathymetry (seabed topography) and city lights data. Colours on land indicate elevation above sea level, with the the colour-coding (low to high) ranging from green through yellow and red to white. GLOBE (Global Land One-kilometer Base Elevation) is a global digital elevation model (DEM), produced by the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). It incorporates data from a range of different sources. Since 2015, GLOBE data has been collated and published by NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). The bathymetry data is from the Smith and Sandwell dataset. The city lights data (grey) is from satellites operated under the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP).
