Notes

Two maps from the information compiled from ground survey by P. Otway of the New Zealand Geological and Survey Expedition, 1961-62 which set out to ensure that New Zealand mapped the Ross Dependency. Both maps feature the route taken by the explorer WW. Herbert and his party. Relief is shown by contours, spot heights in metres and shading.
