Summary
Abstract: The CD was produced by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre for distribution to Heard Island expeditioners in the 2003/2004 season. The CD contained all publicly available data held by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre related to Heard Island at the time of production. The CD also contained all metadata held by the AADC at the time of production.

Furthermore, information is also included from:

AADC's gazetteer
biodiversity database
satellite image archive
gis shapefiles
heard island wilderness reserve management plan

Finally, freely available software needed to browse some of the data are also included.

2012-10-09 - the CD has been copied onto the AADC servers, and is available as a download instead.
