2022-2023 USAP Field Season
The Polar Geospatial Information Center: Joint support
Mr. Jonathan William Pundsack
Supporting Stations: McMurdo Station
The Polar Geospatial Center (PGC) was founded in 2007 as the Antarctic Geospatial Information Center (AGIC) and has since expanded to include both Polar Regions. PGC provides geospatial support in the form of mapping, data delivery, and geographic information systems (GIS) analysis to science and logistics communities of the NSF's Arctic and Antarctic research programs. PGC provides satellite imagery of aircraft landing sites, satellite radar, elevation models, mapping, GIS services, real-time surface imagery, and historical time lapse sequences of changing ice conditions.
Field Season Overview
Four rotating team members will be based at McMurdo Station throughout the season and will provide cartography, remote sensing, and geospatial analysis assistance to science-project grantees and other USAP contractor and logistics entities.
