Maps, charts, and geographic information

The Australian Antarctic Data Centre includes the Mapping and GIS Program. Within this program we:

  • Capture data from the field — ground or remote survey
  • Store data in a spatial database/GIS
  • Generate maps — on demand and as continuously updated series
  • Support the Antarctic Medals and Names Committee
  • Support various SCAR working groups (e.g. Standing Committee on Antarctic Geographic Information (SC-AGI))
  • Develop tools for use within SCAR (e.g. Gazetteer, Feature Catalogue)
