Cocos (Keeling) Islands GIS
Flight Lines & Photo Centres
Title Flight Lines and Photo Centers
Custodian Geoscience Australia
Jurisdiction Australia
Abstract This dataset shows the approximate flight paths (lines) and centres of the aerial photography in relation to the Cocos Islands. This data is used to establish and map the approximate coverage and location of orthophotos over the island. Two shape files were created, one to describe the flight lines the other to describe the photo centers.

Data Quality
Lineage This data was originally provided as a flight diagram on a paper hard copy map. This was then digitised from the flight line diagram using an on-screen based scanned version of the hard copy map as polylines and points respectively.

In December 2003 GA projected the data to UTM (WGS84) zone 47S using ArcView.

Positional Accuracy This data set has been produced by GA to locate the approximate flight paths and photo centers for the orthophotography. GA has found the level of accuracy to be adequate for the purpose intended.
Attribute Accuracy The table attributes describe the photograph number and the corresponding flight run number.
Logical Consistency The themes are used to describe the flight paths and the photo centers of the aerial photography.
Completeness Appears complete for areas other than Horsburgh and North Keeling Islands.
