Antineutrino Global Map 2015 (AGM2015) is an experimentally informed model of Earth's surface electron antineutrino flux over the 0 to 11 MeV energy spectrum. The open source AGM2015 provides fundamental data for experiments, assists in strategic detector placement to determine neutrino mass hierarchy, and aids in identifying undeclared nuclear reactors. Current geological knowledge of the composition of the lithosphere is leveraged by the estimated flux from the mantle, as measured by underground detectors (KamLAND and Borexino), to calculate the planetary antineutrino luminosity at 3.4 (+2.3/-2.2) x 10^25 electron antineutrinos per second.
