A Heard Island Station Plan was drawn by A.Vrana from a 1985/86 survey (AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) No 494). This was digistied to create a DXF file. The DXF file was converted into a shapefile in April 2000 for the GIS using the coordinates of NMOS80 and NMOS97. Attribute data were added to the Shapefile from the plan. The plan was used to create the figure (25) in the &Environmental Guidelines for Antarctic and Subantarctic Helicopter Operations&, published in September 1995. A check of the position of this dataset can be made by comparison with the GPS survey done in Jan 2000.
Stored data format: ArcView shapefile Available format type: ArcView shapefile. Stored as geographicals with a projection file.
