The feature was photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth in Nov. 1935 and was mapped from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. Surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1958. Named by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) for Nathaniel Bowditch (1773-1838), American astronomer and mathematician, author of The New American Practical Navigator (1801) which firmly set out the practical results of theories established at that date and has since gone through more than 56 editions.
