Just wondering if anyone knows or has identified the chart/map of Antarctica that was used in the film "The Thing", or if anyone could point someone in the right direction in trying to identify it. Would like to find a copy/image for framing.

Edit: I think I'm on the right track. Map Catalogue - AADC This is edition 3 from 1979, there's an edition 4 from 1986, and an Edition 1 from 1968. I believe the map from the film may be the Edition 2, but can't seem to find it.

Edit 2: Getting close https://data.aad.gov.au/database/ma...ctica_10m_ed6_with_claims_1979_400dpi_151.pdf
from this page Map Catalogue - AADC
From 1979. I think this is it.
