Satellite Mapping the Antarctic

Leafarctica is an interactive map which allows you to view NASA MODIS satellite imagery of the Antarctic.

The map includes a polar view which would be impossible with the usual Web Mercator projection used by most interactive mapping platforms. Leafarctica therefore uses the Proj4js JavaScript library to enable Leaflet to display an Antarctic Polar Stereographic projection.

The map includes a date input field which allows you to change the Antarctic satellite image displayed on the map by date.
