Using the state-of-the-art digital imaging technology, extended block adjustment, orthorectification and mosaicking, individual Declassified Intelligence Satellite Argon photographic images are precisely assembled into a map quality mosaic of coastal Antarctica. The geometric accuracy of the mosaic is estimated to be approximately equivalent to the original resolution of the Argon photography, which is about 140 m. We compare the Argon mosaic with later satellite images to investigate changes in ice sheet geographic features and dynamical glaciological processes.
