The area is remote and uninhabited. It was named after French Polar explorer Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867–1936) during aerial surveys by Lauge Koch as part of the Three-year Expedition to East Greenland.
Charcot Land is a mountainous region. It is bound to the south by the Daugaard-Jensen Glacier, beyond which lies Hinksland. To the north lies the F. Graae Glacier and to the east the head of the Nordvestfjord, its easternmost point being a headland named Kap Ursus Major.
