This metadata record describes Simone Ingham's survey of vegetation sampling sites on Macquarie Island in the summer of 2001/2002.
The Biolab base station needs to be accurately surveyed from the AUSLIG (now Geoscience Australia) GPS base station (AUS211) and the GPS data re-processed using new coordinates. The re-processing is required to establish the relative and absolute values of Simone's ... survey. Checks will be need to be made in the field with GPS dual frequency receivers on permanent markers surveyed by Simone. This will serve as a check on the survey.
This report has been compiled from Simone's report and email's from Paul Standen / Ultimate Positioning. Paul's report is not definitive regarding the relative and absolute accuracies of Simone's survey.
A pdf copy of the report is available for download from the URL given below.
Copies of the GPS data, and an excel spreadsheet summarising the locations of the various monitored sites are available for download at the URL given below.
