Start date
1 October, 2008

The South Georgia GIS is a collection of topographic, management and scientific data about South Georgia, hosted by BAS on behalf of the Government of South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands.

It is a free service to the science community, and is the place to visualise and download South Georgia-related data for onward work in desktop GIS, compiling maps and so on.

Version 3 was released in Spring 2017 and includes substantially updated topographic layers, as well as high-resolution data for Thatcher Peninsula, the Busen region, Barff Peninsula and Bird Island.
