Foster Plateau is a plateau, about 80 square miles (210 km2) in area, lying between Drygalski Glacier and Hektoria Glacier in northern Graham Land, Antarctica. It was photographed by the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition in 1956–57 and mapped from these photos by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1960 for Richard A. Foster, FIDS leader of the Danco Island station in 1956 and 1957.
