Lineage The dataset was created in QGIS. The Stanley Harbour and Berkeley Sound Port Zone boundaries were created by drawing a line from (Eagle point (north of Berkeley Sound) to Seal rocks (east of Cape Pembroke). The East Cover port zone boundary was realigned to the approximate limits of the port area, as discussed with Bill Dawson (Queens Harbour Master at East Cove/Mare Harbour). Note that, to provide a more accurate extent calculation, the surface coverage of the polygon refers only to the area of sea; the land is excluded.
