Adelie penguin colony boundaries at the Rauer Group and the Vestfold Hills, November 1993
Entry ID: ASAC_2722_Adelie_Rauer_Vestfold_Nov1993

Abstract: This dataset consists of two shapefiles created by Darren Southwell of the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) by digitising the boundaries of adelie penguin colonies at the Rauer Group and the Vestfold Hills. The digitising was done from images resulting from the scanning and georeferencing of aerial photographs taken on 24 November 1993.
The aerial photographs were taken for the AAD with a Linhof camera. Records of the photographs are included in the Australian Antarctic Data Centre's Aerial Photograph Catalogue.
