The search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 ran for more than three years, and was one of the largest marine surveys ever conducted. Within the search area coordinated by the Australian government, 278,000 square kilometres of ocean floor data was collected and collated by Geoscience Australia. That data is now publicly available, and has been used to create an interactive story map of the search for the missing aircraft.

On 8 March 2014 Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 vanished, with 239 passengers and crew - including six Australians - on board the Boeing 777.
Almost three years later, efforts to find the aircraft in a 120,000 square-kilometre underwater search area in the southern Indian Ocean have been officially suspended.
Italian researchers have used the location of confirmed debris from Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared two years ago, to estimate where the missing airliner might have crashed, and where further debris may be found onshore. Their simulations show that the wreckage may lie upwards of 500km further north than current estimates.
