Satellite and topographic image map (edition 2) of Windmill Islands, Antarctica. A satellite image map (second edition) was produced in 1995, and a topographic map (second edition) was produced in 1997. A double sided map containing both the satellite and topographic maps was produced for the Australian Antarctic Division by AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) Commercial, in Australia, in 1997. Both ... maps are at a scale of 1:50000.
The satellite map was produced from merged SPOT multispectral and panchromatic data (341-487, 341-488). It is projected on a Transverse Mercator projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves, station/bases, refuge/depot, sites of special scientific interest (SSSI), specially protected areas (SPA), and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
Data sources for the topographic map are: Coastline, rock/ice interface, contours on rock and spot heights are produced from ANARE aerial photography (January 1994); Approximate contours north of Campbell Nunatak are derived from the November 1989 edition of the map; Approximate contours south of Campbell Nunatak are derived from Soviet mapping (1:100000)dating 1963. It is projected on a universal transverse mercator projection, and shows ship anchorages, traverses/routes/foot track charts, geology, glaciers/ice shelves, penguin colonies, birds, other fauna, stations/bases, refuge/depots, runways/helipads, sites of special scientific interest (SSSI), specially protected areas (SPA), and gives some historical text information. The map has both geographical and UTM co-ordinates.
