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).

Quality

The locations of the photographs were collected with a Garmin GPS12, sent to the camera using the NMEA protocol, and embedded in image EXIF tags. The image metadata were the only record of photo centres logged at flight time.

Flying heights are above the WGS84 ellipsoid in metres.

See the EXIF header of an image for the aperture and shutter speed details for that image.

Locations for ARISE flight 1 photographs are not available due to a GPS problem.

Access

The sets of photographs are not available for download due to combined file size but can be requested via Related URLs.
