High resolution vector contours for Antarctica - VERSION 7.2
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01386

Summary

Abstract:
Complete Antarctic contour dataset, split and labelled according to whether the contour represents an ice or rock surface. Data have been prepared from various map and remotely sensed datasets. Due to the differing sources, this dataset has inconsistent intervals between contour lines. Certain regions contain very detailed contours obtained from VHR elevation models and photogrammetry work. Further information regarding source and source data can be found within the attribute table. Certain inconsistencies and errors are currently known and a comprehensive update is planned for version 7.3.
