This is a Science on a Sphere treatment that contains a segment on mapping the ocean and some of the reasons why we do it. The first link takes you to the description of the SOS resource, and the second link takes you to the flat-screen visual treatment. Be sure to view in full screen view, and for the best view, go see it on a Science on a Sphere near you!
