In 2005 the South Georgia Post Office issued a set of
four stamps, two se-tenant pairs to
commemorate the life of Duncan Carse the leader of the survey
expeditions on South Georgia in the 1950s for the British Antarctic Survey.
The first pair of stamps features two maps, the 1958 map is the
first detailed map of the island of South Georgia based on field
surveys. It was used during the 1982 Falkland Islands conflict. The
2003 is based entirely on satellite information, the Landsat mosaic
and Space Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data. The second stamp of
the pair is a satellite map prepared by the Mapping and Geographic
Information Centre (MAGIC) at British Antarctic Survey.
The second pair of stamps feature a picture
of is a Kern DKM1 that was used for a survey done in 1951-1952, and
one of a Landsat 7 satellite that provided some of the data used in
the new map.
