BAS is a component of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). Based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, it has, for almost 60 years, undertaken the majority of Britain's scientific research on and around the Antarctic continent. BAS collaborated with the U.S Geological Survey and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to create LIMA and was mainly responsible for the Antarctica Peninsula section of the mosaic.

LIMA Poster is an A0 (42" x 31") size poster and shows an overview of LIMA at 1:10 million scale. Separate panels highlight the detail visible at full resolution and the differences between the natural-color, false-color and contrast-stretched versions of the mosaic.
