The Gaussberg 1:5000 Topographic Dataset details features in the Gaussberg area. The Gaussberg falls within Wilhelm II land. The database contains all natural features. Attributes are held for line, point and polygon features. The dataset includes five metre contours. Conforms to the SCAR Feature Catalogue.
Spatial and attribute verification of the dataset was performed on those features included in the Australian Antarctic Spatial Data Model. (The data available below now conforms to the SCAR Feature Catalogue.) This dataset was complied from low level aerial photography (ANTC1050). The scale of the photography is 1:2000. The value tests for this dataset include; A test for spatial accuracy and data ... completeness, including line and polygon errors. A test for valid attributes against the Spatial Model. Horizontal and vertical accuracy of well defined features within the immediate area of the feature are better than +/- 1 m and +/- 2m respectively. Features on the eastern and western edges of the data set may have a lower accuracy. Vertical accuracy of spot heights are better than +/- 0.5 metres. Vertical accuracy of contours are better than +/- 2.5 metres.
