What about the heights of planet Earth? A truly global response has been obtained through the Global Land One-km Base Elevation (GLOBE) project.

The photograph above is the best digital orographic map ever made of the planet we live in, a map whose realization has taken more than ten years, incorporating data provided by several different countries around the world.

The physical map is color-coded, black representing sea level, green relatively low areas, brown high areas and white higher areas.
