Maps

Whether you are a scientist working in the field or just visiting the Antarctic continent it is more than likely you will need maps.

In the UK we take the availability of maps for granted — if you need a new map you go out and buy one. However, in the Antarctic, things are not so easy. Often one of the first things that must be done when starting a science project is to produce the map or to bring an existing map up to date. This is the role of the BAS Mapping and Geographic Information Centre (MAGIC).

British Antarctic Survey has a selection of maps for sale ranging from overview maps of Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula through to more detailed maps of regions of specific interest. The pages below give details about some of the maps BAS has for sale and our full catalogue is available for download.
