Antarctic icesheet datasets
In the Antarctic, south of -60 degrees latitude, glaciation is not explicitly mapped in OpenStreetMap to avoid huge polygons that are difficult to handle. Instead it is assumed that all land areas that are not explicitly mapped otherwise are covered by ice. This needs to be taken into consideration when interpreting the OpenStreetMap data like for rendering a map. The data here was created to make this easier.
