Title: IMAGEAntarctica Database - A Catalogue of Antarctic Images by the Australian Antarctic Division
Description:
Abstract:
The IMAGEAntarctica catalogue contains records of images held in the Australian Antarctic Division's Multimedia Image Library. The material predominantly depicts Australia's presence and activities in Antarctica and the subantarctic since 1947, however, a small number of historic images and those depicting other nations presence and activities in polar regions is also included. The subject range covers people and human activities, the environment, Plantae, Animalia, Fungi and manmade objects. The Australian Antarctic Division does not own copyright for every image contained in this catalogue. To avoid copyright infringement, it is recommended that these images not be reproduced without the express permission of the Australian Antarctic Division. This catalogue is delivered courtesy of the Australian Antarctic Data Centre. Location fields are linked to the Data Centre's Gazetteers, and species are linked to the Data Centre's taxonomy database. The following definitions used for the headings in the IMAGEAntarctica Catalogue are provided to assist you with your search. IMAGE CATALOGUE NUMBER Each image has been allocated a unique catalogue number which is to be used when referencing images. KEYWORDS To assist with the retrieval of images, keywords used have been standardised to describe image content. These keywords have been taken from various thesauri, including the following: Library of Congress Thesaurus for Graphic Materials, Library of Congress Cataloguing Distribution Service, Washington DC 20541-4912 Australian Public Affairs Information Service (APAIS) Thesaurus, National Library of Australia, Canberra Powerhouse Museum Collection Thesaurus, Powerhouse Publishing, Haymarket, NSW Where a published thesaurus does not exist, common usage Antarctic terminology has been taken from The Antarctic dictionary : a complete guide to Antarctic English by Bernadette Hince People depicted are searchable by either surname or given name, written using common language, e.g. Bruce Smith. There is an optional link to the Australian Antarctic Data Centre's taxonomy database for additional information relating to species keywords - http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/biodiversity/search_taxon.cfm. LOCATION Geographic place names in the Antarctic and subantarctic regions used are those contained in the following gazetteers: Australian Antarctic Names Gazetteer SCAR Composite Gazetteer Informal Antarctic/Subantarctic Gazetteer Geographic place names are arranged alphabetically with the specific part first: thus Mount Hassel is listed as Hassel, Mount. All others are written using common language, e.g. Haven Mountain is written as Haven Mountain. There is an optional link to the Australian Antarctic Data Centre's gazetteer and spatial coverage databases for additional information - http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/gaz/search_names.cfm. To keep the data uniform, geographic place names outside the Antarctic and subantarctic regions are also arranged alphabetically with the specific part first: thus Kingston, Tasmania, Australia. PHOTOGRAPHER Photographer's names are arranged alphabetically by surname. Where applicable, a commonly used first name is added in brackets, and follows the given names. DATE The format varies according to the amount of information available, as shown in the following examples: Date Format Specific date 1 January 2003 Month and year March 2002 Calendar year 2002 Sailing season 2002/2003 Expedition 1911-1914 Approximate date ca. 1983 or ca. 1900s Unknown Unknown FORMAT Format Description Landscape - Denotes an image is wider than it is high, and is viewed in the horizontal format Panorama - Denotes an image is considerably wider than it is high, and is viewed in the horizontal format Portrait - Denotes an image is higher than it is wide, and is viewed in the vertical format Square - Denotes an image is equal in height and width VIEW View Description Aerial - Term used for depicting an image taken from an aircraft, but excludes those taken from a satellite Aquatic - Term used for depicting an image of the sea or ocean including fast ice or sea ice, and those containing objects or animals on the water or on fast or sea ice. Fast ice - Defines broken or unbroken ice, attached to the shore, beached, stranded or attached to the bottom in shoal water. Sea ice - Defines ice formed by the freezing of sea water and, in general, is any ice floating in the sea such as pack ice or ice floes. Satellite - Term used for depicting images taken from a satellite. Terrestrial - Term used for describing an image depicting landforms, objects or animals on the land. Underwater - Term used for describing an image depicting the seabed, and objects or animals under the water. ORIGINAL MEDIUM Medium Description Digital photo - A photograph taken using a digital camera as opposed to an analogue image which has been scanned into a digital format. Electronmicrograph Photomicrograph - a photograph taken through an electronmicroscope. Gelatin plate Glass photonegative or phototransparency - an image on a glass plate. Lantern slide Glass photoplate - a positive image on a glass plate, mounted between glass coverplates and viewed by projection. Micrograph Photomicrograph - a photograph taken through a microscope. Negative Film photonegative - photograph in which the tonal values are the opposite of those in the subject to which the negative was exposed. Used for printing a positive print. Print Photoprint - a photograph produced from a photonegative. Tonal values are representative of the subject photographed. Slide 35mm original Film phototransparency - a positive image on a transparent or translucent support, e.g., glass or film base - intended to be viewed by transmitted light or projected on to a screen. Referred to as a slide when mounted. Slide 35mm reproduction quality dupe Film phototransparency reproduction quality duplicate from an original phototransparency - a transparency that has undergone a high quality duplication process. This results in a small loss of quality. Generally used for printing purposes. Slide 35mm projection quality dupe Film phototransparency projection quality duplicate from an original phototransparency - a transparency that has undergone a low quality duplication process. This results in a significant loss of quality. Only used for projection purposes. COLOUR Colour Description Colour Black and white Tone - Denotes an image has been either sepia toned, i.e. reddish-brown, or toned using a range of colours. A process associated particularly with early monochrome photographic prints, negatives or glass plates. COPYRIGHT CONTACT The copyright law is very complex and constantly evolving.
