Virtual Ocean Research Tool

Superb new tool I'm using to help plan the diving expedition this summer; Virtual Ocean has high-res data modelling the sea floor, and many data sets allow you to turn on and off layers of information. Here, you are looking North along the coast of Northern South America; Ecaudor is to the right and 800 miles ahead is Panama. To the left, the Pacific drops off dramatically; vertical scale is exaggerated significantly here, mainly to help visualize the reality. Click to enlarge.
