A colourful British Antarctic Survey map has won a coveted award.

The map, created by the institution's MAGIC (Mapping and Geographic Information Centre) team, is called "Bedmap2: Bedrock topography of Antarctica."

The poster map gives an overview of the data and products included in Bedmap2, an international collaborative project, led by BAS, to map the bedrock surface underneath the Antarctic ice sheet.
