Title: Heard Island: baseline data for monitoring longterm change. (c) Orthophotos used for vegetation mapping.
Description:
Abstract:
The vegetation mapping project used a set of 1987 and 1980 orthophotos and orthophoto mosaics for mapping and screen-digitising (see "Quality" section). Contact AADC for access to these. A shapefile of orthophoto coverage shows polygons for the areas where each orthophoto was used for mapping. This is an essential guide for use when matching the vegetation polygons to the correct orthophotos. A list of the orthophotos and orthophoto mosaics used for the vegetation mapping, with locations, is as follows: ('orthoantc' signifies 1987 series, 'orthocasc' signifies 1980 series. Run numbers are not included. Frame numbers are signified by 'f'). Gilchrist Beach orthoantc1206_f50, f51, f52, f53 Fairchild Beach orthoantc1209_f209, f210, f212 Skua Beach/Stephenson Moraine orthoantc1209_f217, f218, f221, f223, f226 Scarlet Hill orthoantc1202_f32, f34, f36 Skua/Stephenson Moraine orthoantc_f226 Spit north and Spit south orthoantc_f230, f232, f233, f240, f242 orthocasc9495_f15 Paddick Valley orthoantc_f251, f252 orthocasc9495_f17 Winston Lagoon/Capsize Beach orthoantc1209_f260, f261, f263 orthoantc1206_f247 South Barrier/Lambeth Bluff orthoantc1209_f263, f264, f266, f267, f268, f269, f271 Lavett Bluff orthoantc1209_f282 orthoantc1207_f030, f032, f033 Long Beach orthoantc1209_f285, f287, f289, f291, f293, f295 orthoantc1207_f20-f29 (mosaic) Cape Arkona/Cape Pillar orthoantc1209_f303-f315 (mosaic) orthoantc1208_f046, f047 Henderson Bluff orthoantc1209_f320 Walsh Bluff orthoantc1209_f327-f328 (mosaic) orthoantc1208_f11-f17 (mosaic) Cape Gazert orthocasc9495_f63 Laurens Peninsula/Atlas Cove photo_mosaic_laurens_or (mosaic of nine casc9495 frames covering Laurens Peninsula and Atlas Cove area).

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The vegetation mapping project (HI_VEG_ORTHO_VEGMAP) used a set of orthophotos and orthophoto mosaics selected from runs taken in 1980 (casc series, Hasselblad) and 1987 (antc series, Linhof). The 1987 aerial photos were used wherever possible, as resolution was higher. Where there was no 1987 coverage, 1980 aerial photos were rectified and used. Areas where 1980 orthophotos were used were as follows: part of the Spit (central section of Dovers Moraine), the northern part of Paddick Valley, Cape Gazert, Laurens Peninsula and Atlas Cove area. The 1987 and 1980 aerial photos for the areas between Gilchrist Beach in the northeast, to Spit Bay in the east, to Long Beach in the south, to Cape Gazert in the west, were orthorectified using ground control points collected with a hand-held GPS unit in 2000 (ASAC_1181). The Laurens Peninsula 1980 mosaic was orthorectified using ground control points collected with a hand-held GPS unit in 2003-04 (ASAC_1181). A shapefile of orthophoto extents shows polygons for the areas where each orthophoto was used for mapping. This is an essential guide for use when matching the vegetation polygons to the correct orthophotos.
