Sandefjord Bay Satellite Image Map 1:100000Entry ID: sandefjord_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of Sandefjord Bay, Antarctica. 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 1:100000, and was produced from Landsat TM scenes (WRS 126-109, 127-109). It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves and stations/bases, and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
