Service Description: This project is a cooperative effort between the National Ocean Service, National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment, The Nature Conservancy, US Fish and Wildlife Service and Analytical Laboratories of Hawaii, Inc. The greater goal of the work was to incorporate previously developed mapping methods to produce benthic habitat maps of Palmyra Atoll. These products are generated by photo visual interpretation and manual delineation of georeferenced IKONOS and Quickbird 2 satellite imagery. A two tiered habitat classification system was used in this work. The scheme integrates geomorphologic reef structure and biological cover into a single scheme and subsets each into detail. The biological cover attribute is based on dominant biological cover. A separate field identifies the extent of coral cover. It also includes thirteen geographic zones.
