Mawson Station GIS Dataset
Entry ID: Mawson_SAM


Summary
Abstract: This dataset represents topographic features and facilities at Mawson and its immediate environs. Feature types include buildings, masts, tanks, roads, coastline and contours (1 metre interval).
The data are included in the data available for download from a Related URL below.
The data conform to the SCAR Feature Catalogue which include data quality information. See a Related URL below.
Data described by this metadata record has Dataset_id = 111.
Each feature has a Qinfo number which, when entered at the 'Search datasets and quality' tab, provides data quality information for the feature.

Changes have occurred at the station since this dataset was produced. For example some buildings and other structures have been removed and some added.
As a result the data available for download from a Related URL below is updated with new data having different Dataset_id(s).

Quality
The spatial data were compiled from low level aerial photography (500m agl), ground surveys and engineering plans. Photographs were taken with an Australian Antarctic Division Aerial Camera Zeiss UMK1318 (Ser# 7389978-1993). The photographic run was ANTC1021 Run 0 fr 2-7 Run 1 fr 10-18 Run 2 fr 22-29 Run 3 fr 31-33.

Photogrammetric plotting: Wild BC2. Detail attribution of hydraulic site services includes make, size and engineering plan number. All features that were visible in the photography and were of a size appropriate to the scale of the dataset, are included. However some features may not be present or may be the wrong shape owing to the presence of snow in the photography.

All layers have been checked for topology and that they abut and overlap as appropriate.

The positional accuracy of well defined features is +/-0.2m in the horizontal and +/-0.1m in the vertical. ArcInfo coverage tolerances are: Clean tolerance 0.000, Fuzzy Tolerance 0.000, Dangle Tolerance 0.000

February 2001: The contour layer revised. A small number of gaps in contours were removed. Two overlapping contours were corrected.

Datum WGS84.
