    The Antarctica New Zealand Adelie Penguin Census Survey opportunistically took aerial images with a helicopter of known Emperor colonies on Ross Island and across the Victoria Land coastline. These files provide the locations of the colonies surveyed in the 2023/24 season. Geopackage and KML files were created in QGIS, and the coordinates were later used to create the GeoPDF files which were used for helicopter navigation to the colonies.

    The Antarctica New Zealand Adelie Penguin Census Survey takes aerial images with a helicopter of known penguin colonies on Ross Island and across the Victoria Land coastline. These files provide 36 adelie colony locations. The KML and GeoPackage files both include the same 36 colony locations. Note: colony coordinates are missing for Chinstrap Island, Franklin Island East, and Thala Island. Geopackage and KML files were created in QGIS, and the coordinates were later used to create the GeoPDF files which were used for helicopter navigation to the Adelie penguin colonies.

    The Antarctica New Zealand Adelie Penguin Census Survey takes aerial images with a helicopter of known penguin colonies on Ross Island and across the Victoria Land coastline. These maps were generated in QGIS with Quantarctica base layers. Maps have been generated on an Antarctic Polar Stereographic with a WGS 84 reference system, and at a scale of 1:50000. A GeoPDF is a georeferenced pdf file providing users with location data. These maps were used in the 23/24 season to provide location details of the helicopter during flight and the relative location to the Adelie and emperor penguin colony locations being surveyed.
