These data were objectively managed. They were with held from the photo interpreter during map making. The Coral Reef
Assessment and Monitoring Program (CRAMP) of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) maintained these data at
facilities other than ALH. Ultimately, these data were used to prepare the error matrix upon when the statistical
report of the thematic accuracy of the maps was generated.
Transfer of the habitat assessment data is seamless from the field determination to the final GIS product. The data is
not transcribed or rewritten by hand. Errors in processing are not expected.
