Description: The U.S. Antarctic Resource Center

(USARC) is our Nation's depository for Antarctic maps, charts, geodetic ground
control, satellite images, aerial photographs, publications, slides, and video
tapes. These resources are items produced by Antarctic Treaty nations in
support of their activities in Antarctica and provided to the USARC in
compliance with a standing resolution of the treaty providing for exchange of
information. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maintains these materials
through an interagency cooperative agreement with the National Science
Foundation (NSF), which also supports the USGS Antarctic Mapping Program.

The USARC develops and maintains the Antarctic Web site (usarc.usgs.gov) and
its supporting data bases, as well as providing access to other online digital
data bases, such as the Atlas of Antarctic Resources. Located at the USGS
National Center in Reston, Va. the USARC is open to the public from 9:00 a.m.
to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment (call 703-648-6010).
