The Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC) is the part of the Australian Antarctic Division responsible for storing, managing and providing access to data resulting from the Australian Antarctic program’s activities in the Antarctic and subantarctic.
This includes a vast amount of data on the Heard Island and McDonald Islands (HIMI) region, which ranges from maps and records of scientific publications to metadata (data about data!).
Much of this data is freely available to the public via the AADC website.
