Quality
Topographic features in the Heard Island Coastal Area were mapped by a photogrammetrist from the ortho-rectified imagery described in the metadata record 'Heard Island Coastal Orthophotos derived from Non-Metric Photography' (ID - HIC_NMOrthos).

The features were mapped using Erdas 8.5 and ArcView 8.1. The photography only covered coastal regions and excluded glaciers. Photography was taken using a non-metric camera and the data were rectified using GPS ground control and a small scale Radarsat DEM. The calibration details of the camera were unknown.

Any additional topographic features mapped as part of the vegetation mapping project described in HIC_NMOrtho_VegMapping which were not initially mapped were included in the topographic dataset.

The digitised data were then imported into Arc/Info coverage format and topology was created. The data are attributed according to the Feature Catalogue.
