Quality An orthophoto mosaic and a Digital Surface Model (DSM) were created from the aerial photographs of Heidemann Valley (see section 5.5 and Appendix 3 in the report) using a service provided by www.mapsmadeeasy.com. However no control points were used so this data has been archived by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre.
The metadata record with ID aerial_surveys_vestfold_2017-18 describes three aerial surveys of Davis station and an area of the Vestfold Hills to the north-east of the station carried out in 2017/18. An orthophoto mosaic and a DSM were products of each survey. Ground control points were used to constrain the DSM for each survey.
Access Constraints The report and products are only available to Australian Antarctic Division staff.
