  • An incomplete dataset of moraine in Antarctica. Data have been prepared from various map and remotely sensed datasets.

  • An incomplete dataset of moraine in Antarctica. Data have been prepared from various map and remotely sensed datasets.

  • Complete Antarctic contour dataset, split and labelled according to whether the contour represents an ice or rock surface. Data have been prepared from various map and remotely sensed datasets. Due to the differing sources, this dataset has inconsistent intervals between contour lines. The dataset has been generalised from the high resolution contour dataset in some areas. Further information regarding source and source data can be found within the high resolution attribute table. Certain inconsistencies and errors are currently known and a comprehensive update is planned for version 7.3.

  • Complete Antarctic contour dataset, split and labelled according to whether the contour represents an ice or rock surface. Data have been prepared from various map and remotely sensed datasets. Due to the differing sources, this dataset has inconsistent intervals between contour lines. Certain regions contain very detailed contours obtained from VHR elevation models and photogrammetry work. Further information regarding source and source data can be found within the attribute table. Certain inconsistencies and errors are currently known and a comprehensive update is planned for version 7.3.

  • A continuous, smoothed contour dataset at 500 m intervals for all land south of 60degS, excluding the Balleny Islands. The vertical datum of the contours is EGM2008. Contours are extracted primarily from the PGC Reference Elevation Model of Antarctica (REMA) v1.1 with certain islands filled from Copernicus WorldDEM. Peter I Oy contours are from the Norwegian Polar Institute. Sources of individual line segments are contained in the attribute table and full compilation information is given in the lineage statement.

  • A continuous contour dataset at 100 m intervals for all land south of 60degS, excluding the Balleny Islands. The vertical datum of the contours is EGM2008. Contours are extracted primarily from the PGC Reference Elevation Model of Antarctica (REMA) v1.1 with certain islands filled from Copernicus WorldDEM. Further small areas are interpreted from satellite imagery, and Peter I Oy contours are from the Norwegian Polar Institute. Sources of individual line segments are contained in the attribute table and full compilation information is given in the lineage statement. Note: contours overlap the coastline in small areas, due to resolution of the data used in creation of the lines, and potential errors in coastline and/or contour data. Certain areas are known to contain erroneous data due to faults in the original DEM data.

  • Coastline for Antarctica created from various mapping and remote sensing sources, provided as polygons with ''land'', ''ice shelf'', ''ice tongue'' or ''rumple'''''' attribute. Covering all land and ice shelves south of 60S. Version 7.2 was published in May 2020. Suitable for topographic mapping and analysis. Data compiled, managed and distributed by the Mapping and Geographic Information Centre and UK Polar Data Centre, British Antarctic Survey on behalf of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research.

  • The dataset records ice coast and ice shelf front positions and hence change for the period 1843 to 2008. Archival maps, aerial photographs and satellite images of the Antarctic Peninsula were used to reveal the past shape of the ice coastline. The coastlines were mapped in a GIS (ESRI Arc/Info) using a mosaic of Landsat TM imagery as a common reference. Over 2000 aerial photographs and over 100 satellite images were used to compile the dataset that includes the fronts of 244 glaciers and 20 ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula. As the coastlines were digitised on-screen, metadata for each coast segment were added to the attribute table. The dataset is part of a wider project by the U.S. Geological Survey to record coastal-change for the whole continent.
