This double-sided topographic map provides an overview, and comparison, of both polar regions at the same scale and with the same geographical extent. Smaller panels show seasonal sea-ice extent for both areas; Arctic climatic and bio-geographical boundaries, and Antarctica’s relationship to the other southern continents.

Side A: Antarctica. A topographic map of Antarctica, including: Coastline and ice shelves, bathymetry, ice/rock limits, contours, key mountain summits and hill-shaded terrain, and scientific research stations.

Side B: The Arctic. A topographic map of the Arctic, including: Coastline: bathymetry, contours, key mountain summits and hill-shaded terrain, major rivers and lakes, and glaciers and ice caps. It also shows major towns, transport networks, airports and national boundaries.

The folded map comes either with an Antarctic card cover (snowy mountains) or an Arctic cover (reindeer). Both versions are identical inside and have the same ISBN.

Limits: 90° S – 60° S and 90° N – 60° N (all Antarctica south of 60°S and the Arctic north of 60°N).
