Summary
Abstract: The majority of the coastal areas of Heard Island have had their vegetation mapped using orthophotos (HI_VEG_ORTHO_VEGMAP). For the remaining areas, five sets of shapefiles cover the vegetation mapping for five small areas in the Atlas Cove/north coast region: Pageos Moraine/Kildalkey Head, Azorella Peninsula, Hoseason Beach, Saddle Point and Cape Bidlingmaier.

This will be fixed and the data amended. Until this time, the data represent an 'interim' situation of low-resolution vegetation mapping for these areas.
