The Australian Antarctic Division holds a collection of approximately 5,500 maps and charts. A catalogue of its holdings can be searched in detail and viewed in the SCAR Antarctic Map Catalogue.
The Map Catalogue includes many historical maps dating back to the mid 1800's, thematic maps such as geological, vegetation and bathymetry maps, hydrographic charts, topographical maps, satellite image ... maps and orthophoto maps.
Maps for work purposes are provided to Antarctic Expeditioners and AAD staff free of charge. Members of the public may be directed to mapping sales outlets. Contact the technical officer (below) for details.
Many maps in the catalogue are digital maps available for download. These maps are provided free of charge.
The Data Centre employs a Map Curator for adding, updating and correcting map references. The Map Curator is also responsible for storing and manageing the physical copies of maps in the Data Centre Map store.
If there are any errors, please advise the Data Centre using the links on the Map Catalogue page.
