An astonishing new map has revealed the elevation of nearly every place on Earth.
The Global Digital Elevation Model was created using nearly 1.3million images collected by a Japanese camera on board Nasa's Terra spacecraft. It is made up of a giant grid of 23,000 tiles, with each height point spaced 98ft apart.
It shows a detailed representation of the planet's land mass. In this colourised version, low elevations are purple, medium elevations are greens and yellows, and high elevations are orange, red and white.
It reveals that England and most of Ireland are low-lying and share a similar elevation to Denmark, Poland and northern Russia in Europe, Mauritiana and Somalia in Africa, Brazil andArgentina in south America, Florida in the U.S and parts of Australia.
