The best Antarctic map yet


In the middle of International Polar Year scientists have produced the most complete map of Antarctica to date. Our congratulations go out to the people at the US Geological Survey, the US National Science Foundation, and the British Antarctic Survey, for a truly astonishing collaborative venture.

Robert Bindschadler from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre said 'Most people have never been to Antarctica, yet Lima (the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica) is a way that we can bring Antarctica to them'.
