Hi and sorry for the delay.
Right now it's not possible.
Polar projections are not supported yet, but it's planned.
Sorry about that
Best regards

Hi, and thanks for a great app.
I would like to add:
https://www.add.scar.org/
and
https://apc.antarctica.ac.uk
This does not appear to be possible right now?
Is there any possibility that polar projections might be supported soon? This year maybe in time for a trip early 2020.
Many thanks,
Robin

Hi,
I'll make my possible for a near future. Hopefully next version or following one, but can't be sure.

There's also a new free GIS map source released, is there any progress at all on polar projections?

thanks!

Hi,
As an update, I've made some work but it's not yet ready for official release. The polar projections have been added, but it remains a lot of work to properly support polar maps.
If you have the latest beta version from the Play Store (2.2.8 beta), you should be able to display some (most) polar maps but a lot of features are still not working fine, including placemarks, so it should only be used for beta testing. You can find a demo file in attachement if you want to test.
The next official version (2.2.8) will only officially support polar coordinate systems, but not polar maps yet. I'll try to fully support them in the following version, but nothing is sure.

Hi, I have downloaded the demo Polar.aqx from your post. Many thanks and much appreciated. Is this still current or have you made any updates since posting this? Is there any way I can get place names or contours for example. Many thanks. Great work!

Hi,
You can already display most of the data I guess. Get an export in the CSV format and import the file in the app.
For example:
- https://apc.antarctica.ac.uk:
apc_bat_gazetteer.csv.set
(1.08 MiB) Downloaded 518 times
- https://antarctictreaty.maps.arcgis.com:
visitedsites_full_v2.csv.set
(246.91 KiB) Downloaded 571 times

For the maps (& contours, etc), you can use this file, but you'll have some display issues at smaller scales:
www.add.scar.org_wms111.aqx
(66.75 KiB) Downloaded 563 times

Polar maps are now supported in version 2.3.0 and some maps are included in the community maps list.

Hello,

there is a new and very accurate database of topographic maps of Antarctica which can be found at the following link :

https://livingatlas2.arcgis.com/antarcticdemexplorer/

Would it be possible to add it ?
Thank you !

Hi,
Those maps are available in the community maps list, under the name "Antarctic Esri Maps".
