Point data includes the location of volcanic cones, graves, landing areas, automatic weather stations, refuges, summits, boulders, named features and trig points. Line data include lava edges and a walking track.
The data were collected by GPS survey by Eric Woehler (AAD) using a Garmin 12XL receiver (not differentially corrected) during the 2000/2001 field season. The volcanic cone, grave, helicopter landing area, automatic weather station and refuge locations are available in shapefiles and have a Qinfo value of 578. The shapefiles have been formatted according to the SCAR Feature Catalogue.
