Description:
Abstract:
This dataset consists of digital still transect images (JPG files) from CRAMP surveys taken on Maui in 2006 at 8 sites, some of which had multiple depths. Surveys typically consist of shallow (~3m) and deep (~10m) lines. Digital images are important for future researchers to resolve any question about how the image data were interpreted for the quantitative database, to provide the opportunity to re-analyze the images using other methods, and to return to the same locations for future comparisons.

In a separate NODC Accession, text data files are given of the substrate types and coverages as derived objectively from photographic images using PhotoGrid, a software package which analyzes random points on images of coral reefs and substrate.

Purpose: geographic areas and to monitor change at each given site.

Digital Image Transect Method:

1. Field Recording

Data are taken using a digital waterproof cameras. 20 digital images are taken on each of the 10 transects of each line, or 200 per survey.

The photographer follows the following procedure: While on the surface, the diver photographs the landmark "line-ups" used to locate the site. These serve to identify the tape if there is any question of proper labeling. Also, the images can be subsequently printed and laminated for use when relocating the site. In many cases the use of landmarks is faster and more convenient than using the GPS position to relocate the transect site. The diver then goes to the bottom and videotapes a full 360 degree panorama of the site as part of the permanent image record. The diver proceeds to the start of the first 10 m transect and records the transect number on the video through use of hand signals in front of the camera (number of fingers representing transect no.). The photographer then moves slowly (4 min per transect) along the 10 m transect while filming the bottom at a distance of 0.5 m. Initially a rod attached to the camera was used to insure proper distance from the bottom. This has been replaced with two small underwater lasers that cross at 0.5 m, allowing the photographer to hold the distance constant by keeping an overlap on the two red laser dots. Each of the 10 transects along the 100 m spine line is recorded in this manner.
