Satellite image map of Jetty Peninsula, Mac. Robertson Land, Antarctica. This map is part (d) of a series of four north Prince Charles Mountains maps. This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1991. The map is at a scale of 1:500000, and was produced from Landsat TM and Landsat MSS scenes. It is projected on a Lambert Conformal Conic projection, and shows traverses/routes/foot tracks, glaciers/ice shelves, and stations/bases. The map has only geographical co-ordinates.
No satellite data were available at the time of printing for the area bounded by approximately 72 degrees 40 minutes East, 71 degrees 50 minutes South, 73 degrees East, 72 degrees 10 minutes South.

Data source: Seven Landsat TM scenes (131-110, 129-110, 128-110, 128-109, ... 127-110, 124-111, 128-111), acquired 18 Novemeber 1989, 16 October 1988, 18 March 1989, 18 March 1989, 21 February 1988, 22 March 1989, 18 March 1989 respectively, and three Landsat MSS scenes (139-110, 137-110, 138-111), acquired 15 March 1974, 23 February 1974, 18 December 1972 respectively.
Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic, standard parallels 68 degrees 40 minutes, and 71 degrees 20 minutes.
Magnetic Variation: Magnetic declination 71.8 degrees. Magnetic north is correct for January 1992 and moves westerly by about 0.08 degrees each year. True north and magnetic north are shown diagrammatically for a position at the centre of the map.
Nomenclature: Names have been approved by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia.
