Satellite image map of the Southern Prince Charles Mountains (PCM's), Antarctica (SS40-42B). 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 1:500 000, and was produced from eleven Landsat TM scenes. It is projected on a Lambert Conic Conformal (LCC) projection, and shows glaciers/ice shelves. The map has only geographical co-ordinates.

Data source: Eleven Landsat TM scenes (124-111, 124-112, 124-113, 124-114, 127-113, 128-111, 128-112, 129-111, 131-111, 131-113), acquired 22 March 1989, 22 March 1989, 22 March 1989, 22 March 1989, 8 March 1988, 18 March 1989, 18 March 1989, 6 March 1988, 16 January 1991, 18 November ... 1989 respectively.
Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic, standard parallels 72 degrees 40 minutes, and 75 degrees, 20 minutes.
Magnetic Variation: Magnetic declination 69.5 degrees. Magnetic north is correct for September 1992 and moves westerly by about 0.1 degrees each year. True north and magnetic north are shown diagramatically for a position at the centre of the map.
Nomenclature: Names have been approved by the Antarctic Names Committee of Australia.
