Cape Denison Historic Site, Commonwealth Bay - GIS DataSet Digitised from Cape Denison MapEntry ID: cden_gis
Abstract: Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, GIS dataset is a topographic database detailing huts, penguins and natural features such as moraine and lakes. The dataset includes a 5m contour interval.
These shapefiles were obtained by digitising an existing Cape Denison historical map. All information about natural features, biota, etc are sourced from the map. Note, there is more recent data, or better quality data available with other Cape Denison datasets.

Quality Field survey work was performed by surveyor G. Crispo in December 1985. This work produced 20 A1 sheets of field notes, of which further details are provided in the metadata record 'Cape Denison Detail Survey, December 1985, GIS Dataset' Entry ID: cden_survey_gis. In 1990, the Australian Antarctic Division produced a 1:3300 map of the Cape Denison historic site, based on Crispo's survey work. The digital data for this project were lost by a contractor. The historic map was later digitised and it is these data that are available.
