Map of the continent, richly annotated with facts on the region’s history, geography, natural history, etc. Elevation tinting in shades of blue shows the general relief, and elevations and ice thicknesses are marked. Red symbols mark the many research bases, and the approximate position of the magnetic south pole is included. Ice-shelves, glaciers, highland ranges, bays and coastal regions are named and 3 expedition routes are marked: Amundsen 1911, Scot 1911-1912 and the Trans Antarctic Expedition. Unfortunately, latitude and longitude lines are omitted.
Two inset maps show:
- the international territorial claims on Antarctica and the surrounding islands in the southern oceans,
- the sub-glacial highlands of the continent.
