New Antarctic Polar View website launched

The Antarctic Polar View website has been dramatically updated to make access to images much easier. There are plenty of new features yet to come, but in the meantime please have a look and feedback is very welcome.

The other significant change this year is the much larger volume of Envisat ASAR imagery which is being acquired in the Antarctic. Thanks to the MyOcean project, ESA have put a serious amount of effort into delivering the necessary data. So expect to see regular ASAR acquisitions over most areas of Antarctic sea ice without needing to rely on specific requests.

Given that we have established this using OGC standards where practical, it has been relatively easy to think about developing an Arctic version of this site. More news on that later.
