Since 1903 the GEBCO Project has been collecting bathymetric data and mapping the Earth's oceans. GEBCO is an IHO and IOC joint Project that relies largely on the voluntary efforts of an international collaborating community of scientists and hydrographers with the support of their parent organizations.
The Joint IHO-IOC Guiding Committee for the General Bathymetric Chart of Oceans (GEBCO) guides the GEBCO project and comprises 5 representatives from the IHO Member States and 5 representatives from the IHO Member States.
