Map of Antarctica[edit]

What does the gray and purple on the Map of Antarctica mean? --Rogerhc (talk) 03:45, 14 April 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Antarctica#Regions - it's the West Antarctica region. -- Ryan • (talk) • 03:49, 14 April 2013 (UTC)[reply]

The dynamic map AKA the Sawtooth Pole[edit]

Ever checked out the dynamic map image of the South Pole? Yes, I know it's because of the technical limitations of using a 2-dimensional map, but it still looks quite... interesting. Also, try to right-click for some coordinates. :) ϒpsilon (talk) 15:56, 22 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]


I'm confused by this paragraph from South Pole#Understand:

They reached Antarctica in Jan 1911, camping on the edge of the Ross Sea ice shelf. They laid caches then in October set out with dog-hauled sleds along a straight line south, crossing the mountains by the Axel Heiberg Glacier, and reaching the Pole on 14 Dec. They returned safely to the coast in Jan 2012. Just as they were doing so, Scott's Terra Nova expedition belatedly reached the Pole, to find Amundsen's tents and the Norwegian flag fluttering there. That group of five did not survive their return north.

2012? I assume this is intended to be 1912. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 13:36, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Definitely. I've changed it.--ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 16:02, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, thanks. I just wanted to be sure I wasn't misunderstanding the paragraph. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 16:09, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]
