Heard Island and McDonald Islands Satellite Image Map 1:50000Entry ID: heard_is_sat
Abstract: Satellite image map of Heard Island and McDonald Islands, Antarctica. This map was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1991. The map is at a scale of 1:50000, and was produced from multispectral space imagery SPOT 1 and SPOT 2 scenes, with some areas of photography. It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves, stations/bases, refuges/depots, and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
