Maps for Svalbard
A map is handy for all travellers to Svalbard. For trekking and expedition planning a detailed map will be necessary. The best series published covering Svalbard is by the Norwegian Polar Institute's "S100" Svalbard 1:100 000 series. For Longyearbyen and environs get the map "Adventdalen" 1:100.000 published 2003. You can order it from the Polar Institute or buy in a biggish bookshop. Probably they will have all the maps readily available at Longyearbyen, too.And certainly at the Polar Institute in Tromsø: Polar Environmental Centre, 9296 Tromsø.Sysselmannen (The Governor of Svalbard) has a range of specialist maps covering various natural resource and administrative aspects of the islands; see http://www.sysselmannen.no/hovedEnkel.aspx?m=46031 .
