  • Description:
    "A hierarchical classification scheme is being developed to define and delineate the benthic habitats associated with southern Florida's shallow-water (generally, less than 30 m depth) coral ecosystems. The hierarchical scheme allows users to expand or collapse the thematic detail of the resulting map to suit their needs. This is an important aspect of the scheme as it provides a 'common language' to compare and contrast digital maps derived from various remote sensing platforms. The ability to apply any component of this scheme is dependent on being able to identify and delineate a given feature in remotely sensed imagery and assess the accuracy of the resulting benthic habitat map. Furthermore, the hierarchical structure of the scheme enables users to add habitat categories to the resulting GIS-based maps"--Intro.
