ABSTRACT: The objective of this paper is the presentation of two maps that were prepared on the XXXI Polish Polar Expedition (2007) to the Arctowski Station. These maps concern areas that have been sites of Polish scientific interest since 1977 when the Arctowski Station was established. The first -- orthophotomap “Western shore of Admiralty Bay”, 1:10 000 scale, was prepared based on archival aerial photos made in 1978/79, the second -- topographic map “Turret Point, Three Sisters Point and Penguin Island”, 1:12 500 scale was prepared based on a GPS survey. The maps are attached in the inside cover back pocket.
