A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.

This region was photographed by Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE) in 1956-57 and by the Soviet expedition in the Lena in 1957. Named by the Soviet expedition for Nikolai Sakellari, Soviet scientist and navigator.

It was photographed from the air by U.S. Navy Operation Highjump, 1946–47, was surveyed by the Soviet Antarctic Expedition in 1958 and was named after V.V. Frolov, a Soviet polar investigator, and director of the Arctic and Antarctic Scientific Research Institute. The ridge lies situated on the Pennell Coast, a portion of Antarctica lying between Cape Williams and Cape Adare.

The United States Geological Survey is a scientific agency of the United States government. The scientists of the USGS study the landscape of the United States, its natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten it. The organization has four major science disciplines, concerning biology, geography, geology, and hydrology. The USGS is a fact-finding research organization with no regulatory responsibility.
The Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) is a database that contains name and locative information about more than two million physical and cultural features located throughout the United States of America and its territories. It is a type of gazetteer. GNIS was developed by the United States Geological Survey in cooperation with the United States Board on Geographic Names (BGN) to promote the standardization of feature names.
