Ice Maps — harness the power of combined data

Is that really ice on the cruise track ahead? Even experts can have problems correctly interpreting satellite images. To make sure that they're interpreting the data correctly, they use data from multiple of sources. This is exactly what our Ice Maps do: combine the relevant data to enable simpler interpretation.

By combining sea-ice concentration, optical, and radar satellite imagery, our Ice Maps deliver the data used by experts for assessing the sea-ice situation in the field. Level up your on-board information level and support your Ice Map interpretation with our Ice Map Interpretation Manual.

Advantages

  • Save time: focus on cruise planning, not on internet searches.
  • Near-real-time: delivered within 1—3 hours of satellite acquisition.
  • Automated: no manual work required.
  • Low-bandwidth: small file size keeps internet costs low.

The Drift+Noise IceMaps are a meaningful instrument for our voyage planning in the Antarctic and will continue to be used, especially considering the requirements of the Polar Code. We find that the Sentinel-1 (radar) IceMaps deliver the best information.
