Southern Prince Charles Mountains Satellite Image Map 1:500 000Entry ID: pcm_southern_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of the Southern Prince Charles Mountains (PCM's), Antarctica (SS40-42B). This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1993. The map is at a scale of 1:500 000, and was produced from eleven Landsat TM scenes. It is projected on a Lambert Conic Conformal (LCC) projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves. The map has only geographical co-ordinates.
