Brief description

This record describes GIS polygon data (a shapefile) representing the boundaries of Antarctic Specially Protected Areas (ASPAs) and an Antarctic Specially Managed Area (ASMA) in the Australian Antarctic Territory for which Australia was the proponent or co-proponent. Also included is the boundary of ASPA 168 for which China was the proponent.
The following is a list of the ASPAs and ASMA:
ASPA 101 Taylor Rookery
ASPA 102 Rookery Islands
ASPA 103 Ardery Island and Odbert Island
ASPA 135 North-east Bailey Peninsula
ASPA 136 Clark Peninsula
ASPA 143 Marine Plain
ASPA 160 Frazier Islands
ASPA 162 Mawson's Huts
ASPA 164 Scullin and Murray Monoliths
ASPA 167 Hawker Island
ASPA 168 Mt Harding
ASPA 169 Amanda Bay
ASPA 174 Stornes
ASMA 6 Larsemann Hills

The data is available from a link in this metadata record and also, as a separate shapefile for each ASPA or ASMA, from the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat's Antarctic Protected Areas Database (see related url).
GIS data representing the boundaries of other ASPAs and ASMAs is also available from the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat's Antarctic Protected Areas Database.
