Satellite image map of Bunger Hills East/Wilkes Land, Antarctica. This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG Commercial (now Geoscience Australia), in Australia, in 1992. The map is at a scale of 1:50000, and was produced from four multispectral space imagery SPOT 1 scenes. It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
