Is there another way to spell Antarctica?

Ok.  This is weird.  After playing with NOKIA's Here Maps service (yes, dumbest name ever), I seem to have come across an error dissing our many scientist friends at the bottom of the earth.  Though the continent of Antarctica is spelled properly, it sure looks to me like they've named the east portion of it in a more phonetic manner.  I did a little searching and could only find "Did you mean" references for this spelling, so I'm feeling confident that I've found a typo in their service.  Maybe I should get a free trip down there... never mind.  A million thanks is all I need!
