Notes

Map of the routes taken over the period 1902-1903 by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition lead by Otto Nordenskiold, aboard the 'Antarctic' commanded by Carl Larsen. The routes covered the South Shetland islands, then concentrated on the Bransfield Strait as far west as the Belgica Strait [i.e. Gerlache Strait], and as far east as Joinville Island, followed by the sea exploration of the eastern coast of Graham Land. The map outlines sledge journeys, winter quarters and routes taken on both the 1st and 2nd voyages of the "Antarctic".
