    Marie Tharp, working in conjunction with Bruce Heezen and Columbia University, was able to compile a complete and accurate map of the ocean floor. Collaborating with Austrian landscape painter Heinrich Berann, Marie and the Office of Naval Research published the World Ocean Floor map in 1977. This map is still in wide use today. It is not only used as an accurate representation of the ocean floor but when framed it is a beautiful compliment to any room.
