Digital map Spitsbergen

The new year (happy new year to all visitors of this website, by the way!) has a good start, with a slightly delayed Christmas present from the Norwegian government: as announced, the Norwegian Polar Institute has made the digital maps from the Arctic and Antarctic available as downloads. So far, the nice digital maps from Spitsbergen, Jan Mayen and the Antarctic (Peter I Island, Dronning Maud Land) could only be viewed online. Now, they can be downloaded in pixed-based and vector file formats and used under “Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) License”. This means the maps can now be used offline in the field and by authors, website owners and others for publications and this will make some people happy, including the present owner.
