Summary
Abstract: The Australian Antarctic Data Centre digitises on-screen fast ice features from satellite images as required for Australian Antarctic division scientists Dr Jonny Stark and Dr Martin Riddle and will be made available, together with a report on the digitising, when their project is published.
Features digitised include the extents of fast ice in the Windmill Islands and the Vestfold Hills area.
The data conform to the SCAR Feature Catalogue which includes data quality information. Each feature has a Qinfo number which, when entered at the 'Search datasets and quality' tab, provides data quality information for the feature.
