About this map: 

This mini documentary, in the form of a Google Map, enables you to follow Ernest Shackleton's troubled 1914 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Unlike most maps, this map enables you to digitally experience the expedition and zoom in close on each location while you read various content online. Here you can zoom in on the actual locations were they survived on moving ice floes and an uninhabited island after their ship was crushed in ice and sank; and see where they traveled 800 miles across the stormy South Ocean in a life-boat.Please note: The position of the ships in the lower right are in their correct coordinate locations despite the fact that they appear to be on land when viewed in satellite mode. However, if you switch back and forth between satellite mode and terrain mode you will discover how the ship becomes trapped in ice.
