About this product

South Georgia and its offshore islands in the South Atlantic presented by the British Antarctic Survey on a double-sided map combining topographic mapping of the whole island at 1:200,000 scale and detailed topographic mapping of the route of Shackleton’s crossing in May 1916 at 1:40,000 scale. The map is available as either a folded map, or a flat wall map that will be delivered in a poster roll.

On one side is a map presenting the topography by contours at 100 m intervals with numerous trigonometric heights and spot heights. Colouring and graphics indicate ice-free terrain and moraine. Numerous glaciers, peaks, bays, etc, are named and the map shows locations of research stations and disused whaling stations.

On the reverse side is a map covering the route which Sir Ernest Shackleton took during the first ever crossing of South Georgia from King Haakon Bay. This 1:40,000 scale map uses data created from very-high resolution satellite imagery including contours at 50 m intervals and spot heights of the main peaks. This side also has 1:25,000 scale insets of key areas along the crossing, and a cross section showing elevation along the route.

Exploratory notes provide historical background on South Georgia and full technical specifications including data sources and references.
