Casey Station GIS DatasetEntry ID: gis11
Abstract: The Casey Station dataset represents man-made facilities around Australia's Casey Station and its immediate environs. Detailed attributes are held for the data including buildings, site services, communications, fuel storage.
The spatial data have been compiled from low level aerial photography, ground surveys and engineering plans.
Detail attribution of site services includes make, size and ... engineering plan number.
Topographic data for Casey is part of the Windmill Islands 1:50000 Topographic Dataset (see Related URL). This data is described by the metadata record 'Windmill Islands 1:50000 Topographic GIS Dataset', Entry ID: Wind50k.
Changes have occurred at the station since this dataset was produced. For example some buildings and other structures have been removed and some added.
As a result the data available for download from a Related URL below is updated with new data having different Dataset_id(s).

Quality The dataset was originally a reflection of Casey Station at the time of capture: January 4,5 1994. Buildings and structures within the station change every year. Only water services were detailed to a high degree. Source data for this project included aerial photography flown on January 4 1994 at a height of 500 m (film ANTC 1003, 1004) using a Zeiss UMK camera, service detail from the Site ... Services and Maintenance Manual Casey station and ground surveys.
The value tests for the dataset included a test for spatial accuracy and data completeness, including line and polygon errors, a test for valid values against the Australian Antarctic Spatial Data Model, a visual check against all hard copy material.
The data were originally formatted according to the Australian Antarctic Spatial Data Model and are included in the GIS data for Casey available for download from a Related URL.
The data has been reformatted according to the SCAR Feature Catalogue which superseded the Australian Antarctic Spatial Data Model.
Data that are part of this dataset have Dataset_id = 11 in the SCAR Feature Catalogue format. Dataset_id is an attribute in the attribute table.
Data quality information for any feature can be searched for at a Related URL by entering the Qinfo number of the feature at the 'Search datasets and quality' tab. Qinfo is an attribute in the attribute table.
