Search for place names

The SCAR Composite Gazetteer Antarctica and SCAR Map Catalogue are relational databases so that maps for a particular area may be searched for via the gazetteer and the names that fall within the bounds of any map may also be listed.

For example:
Name of feature - Windmill Islands.

When gazetteer information on Windmill Islands is shown, a link to the maps available for the area is shown at the bottom of the page. Click on the scale of the map required, choose a map from the resulting list and the option of listing names within the extent of the map.
