Recently I’ve been reading Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage. On the whole book they describe its current position, movement, etc.. but it’s difficult for me to understand certain positions on the poles. Also, the history is so astonishing that it deserved a cool map.
There are some maps of the Imperial Trans-Antartcic Expedition: http://www.kodak.com, http://www.wgbh.org, coolAntarctica, and a long etcetera. But I wanted to play a little bit.
Nice view of Shackleton Imperial Trans-Antartcic expedition. Information of each point and also photos.

That’s interesting, show me how
For Module8, at ITC we have been learning about MapServer and OpenLayers. In my case, I also been playing with TileMill. Here I explain all the steps needed to create a small map with tilemill.
