bartaloslvsbpg020view10-500x341 This is a fabric map of Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. The airstrip is at top. The new elevated station is shown in blue. The Xs indicate the ever-migrating geographic South Pole marker, and the knob at right is the Dark Sector, a research area free of electromagnetic interference. Everything else that goes on is at left. Accuracy and scale aside, I could have used one of these sewn to my jacket sleeve dur- ing my visit there. It beats fumbling with paper maps in windy, subfreezing conditions.
