Quality This shapefile of contours was interpolated from a triangulated irregular network that was generated from slope corrected orthometric heights of Antarctica.
These heights were derived using ERS radar altimetry.
The ArcView 3D analyst was used to interpolate the contours. The resulting shapefile was converted to an Arc/Info coverage. The Arcedit generalize ... View entire text
