Mapping the world's oceans is a tremendous task that would benefit from a prioritisation strategy. In this article, an in-depth presentation of one such approach is given: a GIS-based analysis that identified potential target areas for future mapping efforts in the North Atlantic Ocean. The authors state that more knowledge about the seafloor could be significantly accelerated if all bathymetric data were publically available.
