About this map

The South Shetland Islands at 1:200,000 on a map from the British Antarctic Survey dividing the whole group between three panels, with topography of the islands vividly presented by satellite imagery overprinted with contours, plus marking for scientific stations, historic sites, etc. The map is available as either a folded map, or a flat wall map that will be delivered in a poster roll.

The map splits South Shetland Islands into three panels: Elephant Island with Clarence Island, King George Island with Robert Island, plus on the reverse the southern group around Livingstone Islands and Deception Islands. Excellent satellite imagery provides a vivid picture of each island’s terrain, with additional contour lines at 250 m intervals, spot heights and plenty of names of topographic features. The maps also show permanent and seasonal research stations; Antarctic Special Protected Areas (APSAs) and Historic Sites and Monuments (HSMs) are marked and listed with their Antarctic Treaty numbers.
