Quality The triangulated irregular network (TIN) was generated from slope corrected orthometric heights derived from ERS radar altimetry (refer to metadata record GRI_ORT_SLC_FIN). The ESRI ArcGIS 3D analyst extension was used to generate this TIN using only the valid points in the shapefile. The Antarctic coastline, from the Antarctic Digital Database version 3, was used as a breakline in the TIN ... View entire text
