Heard Island digitising 2009Entry ID: Heard_Island_digitising_2009
Abstract: Digitising of the coastline, glacier extents, water features, wildlife, and human footprints of the Heard Island Remote Sensing Project, 2009. This GIS data has Dataset_id = 273 and is available for downloading under the heading Heard and McDonald Islands (see url below).
The coastline and glacier data available for download was updated in May 2014 after the correction of dates in the Date of Capture field which records the date of capture of the image from which the digitising was done. The coastline of the offshore rocks which were large enough to map as polygons was added to the coastline data.
