The following computer-simulated flyover of the New Zealand Continental Shelf has been created by GNS Science for LINZ.

The bathymetric data are from satellite altimetry operations combined with shipborne echo-sounding measurements, and are available from the National Geophysical Data Centre (NGDC).  Derivition of this data is described by Walter H. F. Smith and David T. Sandwell in Global Seafloor Topography from Satellite Altimetry and Ship Depth Soundings, published in Science magazine.
