Contour source data for the Amery Region map dated November 2002.
Entry ID: ERS_CONT_SOURCE_AMERY


Summary
Abstract: This polygon shapefile was used in the contour source diagram on the Amery Region Map published by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre in November 2002 (see link).

The contours used in the map were derived from a number of different data sources:
1 - Russian Space Photography, ERS-1 Radar Altimeter data and digitised from 1:1 million scale maps produced by National Mapping Australia;
2 - Antarctic Digital Database Version 2;
3 - ERS-1 and ERS-2 Radar Altimeter data (BKG, Germany).

This shapefile shows in which part of the map each source was used.

Quality The dataset was generated by converting each line vertex in the Amery Region map contour data (refer to metadata record ERS_CONT_MERGED_AMERY) to a point feature tagged with information about the source data set. Each point was then converted into a region using the ArcInfo Thiessen command, ie region boundaries were created midway between points. The resulting polygons for each point were then merged together based on the source data field to produce this final data set. The Antarctic coastline was then pasted into the dataset to correctly represent this edge.

Available unprojected or in a Polar Stereographic projection with true scale at 71 degrees S.
