Google Earth's 3D panoramas

Cape Evans

The UKAHT responds to Google Earth's 3D panoramas of Antarctic historic huts.

Rachel Morgan, Director of the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust, says:

“We welcome Google Earth’s new panoramas as an opportunity for greater numbers of people to learn more about Antarctic heritage, both in Britain and around the world”.

“Today, in the centenary year of his expedition to the South Pole, Scott's hut still stands as testament to the spirit of adventure, stoicism and bravery with which he and his men faced their time in Antarctica and, as such, it should be treasured by the international community along with Shackleton's hut at Cape Royds”.
