Tom Percy is an Industrial Designer with nearly a decade of experience. Whilst working full-time he developed and refined his vision of 3D ocean maps as a personal side project. His passion for the water extends beyond art into windsurfing, skiing and sailing, as well as protecting our coastlines.
The first map created was of Moreton Bay, home to Tom and his partner Bernadette. It was a present for his father’s birthday and was received with great enthusiasm. Since then he has produced maps of many Australian coastlines (including NSW & VIC).
Pangea Maps was born out of a love for the water. The vastness and beauty below the water’s surface is what they wanted to capture. Using bathymetric data their 3D maps depict the contours of the ocean floor and reveal those treasured spots where we can surf, dive, swim, sail and play.
“Pangea” was the first supercontinent which, over 300 million years, broke up into the 7 continents we know today.
Tom and the team are passionate about protecting the world’s oceans and coastlines. They hope that their maps can help people to connect with their environment by appreciating it from a whole new perspective.
