Summary
Abstract: Ground control points were captured in the field as described in the metadata record "Global change, biodiversity and conservation in terrestrial and coastal ecosystems on Heard and McDonald Islands [ASAC_1181]". The aim of this project was to identify the control points on various satellite images (AADC Image IDs 253, 267, 446 and 447) to determine image coordinates for the control points. These would then allow the satellite image to be adjusted to the ground control. There is a shapefile for each image with the features in the shapefile moved to the corresponding image location. Attributes in the shapefile include image coordinates (UTM43) and control point coordinates.

Quality Ground control points were captured in the field by Dr Jenny Scott using differential GPS as described in
"Global change, biodiversity and conservation in terrestrial and coastal ecosystems on Heard and McDonald Islands [ASAC_1181]".
David Smith of the AAD Data Centre provided a shapefile called control_pts_UTM43 which had been exported from the differentially corrected ... View entire text
