  Name: The Antarctic Cryosphere Access Portal (A-CAP)
  Abbreviation: A-CAP
  Description: A-CAP is a geo-visualization and data download tool developed at the NSIDC Antarctic Glaciological Data Center (AGDC). A-CAP provides access to AGDC data and other Antarctic parameters including glaciology, ice core data, snow accumulation, satellite imagery, digital elevation models (DEMs), sea ice concentration, and many other cryosphere-related measurements. A-CAP is an interactive map interface that allows users to zoom in and out, overlay coastlines, place names, latitude/longitude, and other geographic information, and access data. A-CAP map images and source data are also accessible via the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Web Map Service (WMS), Web Feature Service (WFS), and Web Coverage Service (WCS).
