Heinrich Caesar Berann, the father of the modern cartographic panorama painted the first in a series of plan oblique physiographic maps of the ocean floor for Marie Tharp and Bruce Heezan in 1967. Their collaboration culminated in the 1977 World Ocean Floor Map, which revolutionized the theories of plate tectonics and continental drift (click to enlarge).
