Published documents of interest
- Mapping a Stateless Continent, a 2017 paper by John Manning, in which he described Antarctica as a stateless continent never having had an indigenous population, nor a permanent colonial occupation that exercised political or economic control. Consequently, it has had no clear single ownership or governance, and mapping has come from a number of contributing sources.
- John Manning's 2010 paper The 1939 Australian Map of Antarctica was published in The Globe No 65 (the Journal of the Australian and New Zealand Map Society). A copy of this paper from the Mapping Sciences Institute, Australia website is available at this link.
