While there is not much commercial geospatial data available for Antarctica, the research community has collected a lot of data. Much of that data is publicly available and bug parts are in the Public Domain.

Here is an (unsorted) list of available data. Unless explicitly mentioned it is not clear if this data can be used as source for OSM.

  • for the Ross Sea including McMurdo Station (USA) and Scott Base (NZ), the LINZ data upload for New Zealand is providing the topomap data produced by the NZ gov't in an OSM-compatible license, with the gov't's blessing and encouragement. See the LINZ wiki page for how you can help.
