You may not want to go mountain climbing in Antarctica. They don’t make socks warm enough. But people can now see the terrain and its elevations thanks to work by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. NGA provided the imagery leading to release of the first Reference Elevation Model of Antarctica. NGA data scientist Brian Bates joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to share details of the project.
