Henk Brolsma and Roger Handsworth of the Australian Antarctic Division carried out GPS surveys at Casey, Casey skiway and Mitchell Peninsula in February 2009.
At Casey they surveyed the quarry face, the wharf and the road from the quarry to the station and then to the wharf. They also collected the location of the tide gauges installed at the wharf.
The Casey skiway was surveyed at the request of ... Andrew Pappas of Aeronautical Engineers Australia so the slope of the skiway could be determined.
The survey at Mitchell Peninsula was done at the request of Casey Station Leader Graham Cook who considered the area surveyed to be a possible alternative site for a skiway.
The GPS data, shapefiles exported from the GPS data after postprocessing of the rover files against the base files and a document summarising the survey are available for download from a Related URL.
The elevations of the point data in the shapefiles are above the WGS84 ellipsoid.
GIS data for Casey and the Windmill Islands were derived from the survey data.
Casey: spot heights, quarry face, wharf, tide gauges.
Windmill Islands: spot heights.
The elevations of the spot height data are in metres above mean sea level.
These data are part of the data available for download for Casey and the Windmill Islands - see Related URLs.
The survey data were also used as a guide for revision of some of the road data for Casey, together with advice from the Station Leader Graham Cook.
The GIS data are formatted according to the SCAR Feature Catalogue which includes data quality information. See Related URL.
Dataset_id is an attribute of the GIS data available for download. Data from this dataset has a dataset_id of 277.
