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 ice covered. This needs to be taken into consideration when interpreting the OpenStreetMap data like for rendering a map. The data here is created to make this easier.
