Macquarie Island AIRSAR DEM (Digital Elevation Model)
Entry ID: macca_dem_gis


Summary
Abstract: A digital elevation Model (DEM) of Macquarie Island with a five metre grid interval, and held in UTM Zone 57 , WGS 84 coordinates. Heights are referenced to mean sea level. 5 metre contours to the 5 metre level were derived.

This metadata record is related to the metadata record Macquarie Island and adjacent islands 1:50000 Coastline GIS Dataset.

The DEM was improved by Dr Michael Roach, Lecturer in Geophysics, School of Earth Sciences - CODES, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia and a copy provided to the Australian Antarctic Data Centre in January 2006. This improved version is the dataset available for download.

Details about the processing done by Dr Roach are available from the link below.
