Route map showing the routes of Shackleton and Amundsen in the quest for the Pole. Amundsen's team set off from their ship, the Fram where the winter base was named "Framheim". Also shown is the position of Scott's expedition and the route taken by Shackleton in 1908 - 1909 who were at the point the team that had reached the furthest point south.

There is no route shown for Scott's team as it was not known at the point when Amundsen's team set off, Scott and his men set off later. The area labelled "Level Surface of Barrier Ice" is now known as the Ross Ice Shelf.
