This is an Antarctic Mapping Tools plugin for MEaSUREs Antarctic Boundaries for IPY 2007-2009 from Satellite Radar, Version 2 (Mouginot et al., 2017). All the data are contained in this File Exchange upload, so you don't need to download the data from the NSIDC, but you can read the full details here: http://nsidc.org/data/NSIDC-0709.

This toolbox contains several functions for masking based ice basins, or groundedness. Also some plotting functions to show grounding line, coast line, or ice basins.
