AGIC Customer Service Plan Available to View
The Antarctic Geospatial Information Center (AGIC) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded center established in October 2007 to create, collect, distribute, and archive Antarctic geospatial information to serve the needs of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) operations, research, and education communities. AGIC provides cartographic services, geospatial applications, data archiving, and data delivery solutions for Antarctic geospatial data.
The policy of the AGIC is to develop and create maps requested by select Raytheon Polar Services Company (RPSC) personnel and NSF approved and funded Principle Investigators. Maps include traverse/route progress, sea ice extent, helicopter and fixed wing landing sites, fuel cache locations, ice roads, hiking routes, field camp locations, environmental management, USAP stations, construction planning, surveying, Field Safety Training Program (FSTP), and Search and Rescue (SAR).
