Hydro International – 

On 11th January 2012 Google replaced their global bathymetry SRTM30_PLUS V4.0 with the newer version V7.0.

This increase the area of seafloor covered at 1km resolution from 10% to 15%.

The new version also corrected thousands of errors in the old data.

By visiting Google Earth, you can use the “historical imagery” flag to see old versus new.

The SRTM30_PLUS V7.0 overlay can be downloaded from the site of Scripps Institute of Oceanology to see the trackline coverage and confirm that there is a perfect match.
