This basic basemap fills in the Earth's "land" regions (all areas above mean sea level), including Antarctica's continent with or without the surrounding ice shelves. When displaying Antarctica, please note that other selected basemaps will likely mask this layer initially. To view this basemap more properly, either deselect the other basemaps or set their opacities to less than 100%.

Note: Coastlines and country borders are available in the "overlays" folder below, if desired.
