A GIS dataset of Snow Petrel nests mapped in the Mawson region during the 2004-2005 seasonEntry ID: SNPEMAWSON04-05
Abstract: Very little information is known about the distribution and abundance of Snow petrels at the regional and local scales. This dataset contains the locations of Snow petrel nests, mapped in the Mawson region during the 2004-2005 season. Location of nests were recorded with handheld Trimble Geoexplorer GPS receivers, differentially corrected and stored as an Arcview point shapefile (ESRI software).
... Descriptive information relating to each bird nest was recorded and a detailed description of the data fields is provided in the description of the shapefile (word document). A text file also provides the attribute information (formatted for input into R statistical software).
This work has been completed as part of ASAC project 2704 (ASAC_2704).
