Quality GIS data representing southern giant petrel was created using map 12933 from the SCAR Map Catalogue, annotated by Dr Eric Woehler based on his visit to the Frazier Islands, 14 December 2005.
Southern giant petrel colonies sketched on the map were digitised after the annotated map was scanned and georeferenced in ArcGIS 10.
Eric also indicated on the map the colonies shown that were still current.
A scan of the annotated map is included in the zip file linked to this metadata record.
