Esri released “Peaks and Valleys,” a 3D Story Map that displays the highest and lowest point on the planet.

The map features the heights and descriptions of these points. It takes viewers on a journey through mountain ranges and valleys in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Australia, Antarctica and the Pacific — from Mount Everist to the Challenger Deep.

“Our planet’s peaks and valleys represent some of its most hostile, remote and beautiful environments,” the website reads. “These extreme locations continue to hold a strange allure to explorers and adventurers. To those of us who are adventurers of the armchair type, and who are unlikely to experience these vertiginous locales first-hand, we present this virtual tour of Earth’s highs and lows.”
