Here's an excerpt of a base map to be used in visualizing/animating their route in a TV-production. (As of now, they ar just beyond half way).
Produced with open data from the Norwegian Polar Institure using hybrid shaded relief and texture shading together with hachure shading (Patterson), and rendered as a planimetric oblique map, using Natural Scene designer.
Next step will be to animate the route progress toghether with some labels using Flash or other animation software. For that I will have to await their actual GPS-track once they are back from their expedition.
