Great maps from NOAA


This is just one of several stunning images available from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC).

Downloadable, available on CD-ROM — this is good stuff for PowerPoint presentations and other classroom use.
