Edward VIII Gulf Satellite Image Map 1:100 000Entry ID: edward_viii_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of Edward VIII Gulf, Kemp Land, 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 a Landsat TM (WRS 139-107) scene (bands 2,3 and 4). It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves and penguin colonies, and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
