Just over 100 years ago, Robert Scott made his famous expedition to the South Pole. Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere are currently re-tracing the route of Captain Scott, and Dj from OffroadingHome has built some excellent Google Earth files to help track their journey:
I, like many others, are following “the Scott Expedition” currently underway on Antarctica. Frustrated by the lack of topography on the satellite images in Google Earth, I began creating a “resource map” containing all the waypoints and overlays that I could find for Antarctica. It grew and has helped me greatly as I “armchair explore” along with Ben and Tarka.
His file is very comprehensive, including the current location of the explorers, the Scott Expedition trail, Captain Scott’s original trail, buildings, bases, glaciers and many other items. If you have any interest in this new expedition, Dj’s file is an excellent tool to compliment their journey.
