Abstract

A continuous, smoothed contour dataset at 500 m intervals for all land south of 60°S, excluding the Balleny Islands. The vertical datum of the contours is EGM2008. Contours are extracted primarily from the PGC Reference Elevation Model of Antarctica (REMA) v1.1 with certain islands filled from Copernicus WorldDEM. Peter I Øy contours are from the Norwegian Polar Institute. Sources of individual line segments are contained in the attribute table and full compilation information is given in the lineage statement.
