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).
The Australian Antarctic Data Centre's topographic GIS data for the Windmill Islands, Antarctica were originally mapped mainly from aerial photography: refer to the metadata record 'Windmill Islands 1:50000 Topographic GIS Dataset'.
Since then features from various sources have been added to this data.
The data are available for download as part of the Windmill Islands GIS dataset from a Related URL.
The data are formatted according to the SCAR Feature Catalogue (see Related URL). Data that are part of this dataset have Dataset_id = 164 in the SCAR Feature Catalogue format. Dataset_id is an attribute in the attribute table.
Data quality information for any feature can be searched for at the Related URL by entering the Qinfo number of the feature at the 'Search datasets and quality' tab. Qinfo is an attribute in the attribute table.
The data are publicly available in shapefile format for download from the provided URL.
