Service Description: The Northeast Puerto Rico and Culebra BIOmapper provides researchers, resource managers, and the general public with a benthic habitat map, geostatistical bathymetry models, satellite imagery, a principle component analysis, and thousands of high resolution underwater videos and photos. The area of interest includes the nearshore waters of Fajardo and Luqillo to the Former Roosevelt Roads Navy Base, the Vieques Sound, La Cordillera Reserve, the Luis Pena Reserve, and the waters around Culebra Island. The benthic habitat map is classified based on 1) geomorphological structure, 2) hard bottom cover, 3) topographic complexity, 4) dominant biological cover, and 5) live coral cover. Underwater photo and video data was collected for the ground validation and the accuracy assessment of the map to correct any bias from the remote sensing and geostatistical modeling, and analyzed for biological and ecological data of the NER not attainable from the imagery. The spatial products developed for this project will: (1) inform local managers as to the current distribution of resources, (2) provide a point of comparison for past and future mapping efforts, (3) help locate sensitive marine communities, and (4) guide monitoring efforts and prioritize management actions.

Layers: Description: The primary purpose of this database was to provide researchers, managers, and the public with an accurate and highly detailed benthic habitat map of Northeast Puerto Rico (NEPR). Habitat maps provide a spatially explicit representation of benthic structure and biological cover. The spatial products developed for this project will: (1) inform local managers as to the current distribution of resources, (2) provide a point of comparison for past and future mapping efforts, (3) help locate sensitive marine communities, and (4) guide monitoring efforts and prioritize management actions.
