USGS Mapping Information: GNIS Antarctica Data Base Query Form

The US Geological Survey provides this site, an interactive database that allows the user to query over 12,000 Antarctic geographic names by Feature Name (variant name searching is also supported), Feature Type, Elevation, Description, and Location (latitude and longitude). Retrieval contains all of those variables and a map generated by the Xerox PARC Map Server (discussed in the November 25, 1994 Scout Report). The Antarctica database joins the well-known GNIS US and Territories database, which contains "almost two million physical and cultural geographic features in the United States."
