Abstract: The Sverdrup expedition of 1898-1902 contributed more than any other single expedition to the map of the Canadian arctic archipelago. About 100,000 square miles were explored by the expedition, the second Norwegian expedition in the Pram. Practically all of the west coast of Ellesmere Island was surveyed and details of the south coast filled in. The Ringnes and several other islands were discovered as well. These geographical discoveries were remarkable in themselves but were surpassed by the high quality of the surveying, mapping, and scientific work of the party.
