Animated Maps: Submarine Cables


Deep on the ocean floor you will find communication cables made to carry signals from one land to another. The first undersea communications cables, laid in the 1850s, carried telegraphy. Now these cables carry our phone and Internet traffic. Yet, they remain relatively hidden in the depths of the ocean.

This animated map was made using Esri’s ArcGIS Pro, Cinema 4D, Redshift, and Adobe After Effects. Please visit http://ow.ly/fm2950xgu0B for more information about ArcGIS Pro.
