Welcome to ADAM - Antarctica New Zealand's Digital Asset Management system

Antarctica New Zealand is the Crown Entity responsible for developing, managing and executing New Zealand Government activities in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. We also manage Scott Base, New Zealand’s Antarctic research station which supports science in the Ross Sea region.

New Zealand has had a permanent presence on the ice since 1957. As a result, Antarctica New Zealand has an extensive media collection with thousands of amazing images supported by background and location information dating back almost 60 years. ADAM brings together more than 40,000 digitised historical and scientific images on a multimedia platform – one of the largest Antarctic focussed image collections on the planet!

Antarctica New Zealand is proud to share with the people of New Zealand and across the world, the rich history of New Zealand's presence on the ice.
