Quality Most of the data are based on lines drawn on a map of the island by Michael Carr, a former station leader. The dataset was created by first copying the lines representing the Macquarie Island coastline from the Macquarie Island and adjacent islands Coast GIS Dataset.
Lines were then split by eye, as necessary, according to the information from Michael.
Some modifications to this data, using the same method, were made based on advice from Paul Scott (Field Training Officer), Louise Crossley (Station Leader 2000) and Robb Clifton (Station Leader 2001). The data conforms to the Australian Antarctic Spatial Data Model which includes Data Quality Indicators.
