DIGITIZER Ancillary Description
Quality It is impossible to assess errors that might have occurred in translating ice observations to the original operational charts and to SIGRID files, since these steps were performed at AARI. However, AARI estimates that ice edge boundaries are generally accurate to between 2 and 10 km under typical ice reconnaissance conditions, and to within 50 km under the worst conditions. Quality control routines assessed the 'correctness' of the AARI coding (i.e., checked whether the AARI implementation of SIGRID matched the published standard). Few errors were found in AARI's coding of the files.
