All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Description

This record contains digital photographs collected for the Windmill Islands long term vegetation monitoring program, conducted between 2003 and 2014, under projects ASAC_1313, AAS_3042 and AAS_4046. These photographs include photographs showing the transect and quadrat locations, photographs of each quadrat to assess vegetation cover/health in 2003, 2008, 2012 and 2013 (data presented in separate metadata record: doi:10.4225/15/59d454f962bd6), and photographs yet to be analysed.
Quadrat location data at two sites in the Windmill Islands (ASPA 135 and Robinson Ridge) are provided in metadata ID: AAS_4046_quadrat_locations
(http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/metadata/metadata.cfm?entry_id=AAS_4046_quadrat_locations).
And shown in two maps which are available via the AADC map catalogue:
http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/mapcat/display_map.cfm?map_id=14450
http://data.aad.gov.au/aadc/mapcat/display_map.cfm?map_id=14451
Baseline survey was described in Metadata ID ASAC_1313_Transects_2002-03; five and 10 year surveys described in ASAC_1313_Transects_2007-08 and AAS_4046_Transects_2012-13, respectively.
Data summary for entire Windmill Islands long term vegetation monitoring program is presented in the metadata record doi:10.4225/15/59d454f962bd6.


FILE: AAS_4046_QuadratPhotographs.zip
This zip file contains a number of subfolders as follows:

“QuadratLocations” folder:
• Contains 3 subfolders
o TransectLocations
 photographs showing the locations of the transects within each site
o TagLocations
 Photographs showing the locations of the tags which identify the locations of quadrats along each transect
o QuadratPlacement
 Photographs showing the placement of the quadrats in relation to the tags and surrounding rocks
File naming convention = SITE_#X_type_x.JPG
Where:
SITE = ASPA (ASPA 135) or ROB (Robinson Ridge)
# = Transect number
X = Community identifier: B = Bryophyte community, T = Transitional community; L = Lichen community
type = type of photograph: transect = transect location, tagL = tag location, QL = quadrat placement
x = iterator: where more than one photograph exists, a lowercase letter has been added here

“QuadratPhotographs” folder:
• Contains 6 subfolders, one for each year of quadrat photographs (ie. 2003, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014)
File naming convention = SITE_YEAR_X#x.JPG
Where:
SITE = ASPA (ASPA 135) or ROB (Robinson Ridge)
YEAR = year of field photography (see metadata record doi:10.4225/15/59d454f962bd6 for details of field sampling dates)
X = Community identifier: B = Bryophyte community, T = Transitional community; L = Lichen community
# = Transect number
x = iterator: where more than one photograph exists, a lowercase letter has been added here
