Description:
Abstract:
OGIS provides a comprehensive, interactive data source for the Oculina Banks Habitat Area of Particular Concern (OHAPC), a marine protected area off the east coast of Florida in 70 to 120 meters of water depth. An Oculina Geographic Information System (OGIS) provides a comprehensive, interactive data source for the Oculina Banks Habitat Area of Particular Concern (OHAPC), a marine protected area off the east coast of Florida in 70 to 120 meters of water depth. Data layers include: : multi-beam bathymetry, single-beam bathymetry, sidescan mosaics, sediment analyses, resulting interpretative maps of habitat types, video and still imagery from submersible (human occupied and remotely operated vehicles) dive transects and point counts (fish and habitat cover), and dive narratives. The data presented in the Oculina Banks Geographic Information System (OGIS) was collected as part of a cooperative project between: the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Undersea Research Program, NOAA Fisheries (also primary sponsor of OGIS), NOAA Ocean Service, NOAA Ocean Exploration Program, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)-- Coastal and Marine Geology Program, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution (HBOI) and Florida State University.
Purpose:
The goal of OGIS is to provide interactive access to a variety of data sources that characterize fish populations and habitat condition in the OHAPC, for use by fisheries managers, scientists and the general public.
Supplemental_Information:
Oculina Decision Support System:

The Oculina Decision Support System CD includes: - Web site (CD and on-line) - ArcView 3.2, On-line- less populated ArcIMS version of ArcView OGIS) - Raw data sets (CD)

The CD contains three folders and two readme files in the root directory. The readme files explain what is on the Cd and how to use the various products. The three folders include:

Oculina - Web site pages Oculina_arcview - the ArcView 3.2 project files Oculina_metadata - first draft of metadata created by C. Manning

Web site (oculina folder): - 9 pages linked to main index.htm, including: introduction, site history, 2001 survey, coral biology, reef ecology, human impacts, restoration, references, links, acknowledgements, and GIS Tools - last page, GIS Tools, among other things, links to the on-line ArcIMS version of the Oculina GIS (OGIS).

The main OGIS is in ArcView 3.2. A reduced ArcIMS version is available at www.uncw.edu/oculina. The ArcView project file, oculina_cd.apr, located in the /oculina_arview/ folder on the CD. Data folders in the /oculina_arcview/ folder include:

- Clelia_pdf folder on CD: dive narratives from research sub Clelia dives during 2001 Islands in the Stream expedition to Oculina Banks; each file was written by J. Arcuri on contract; each adobe pdf describes one dive based on review of the videotapes recorded during dive; observations include qualitative observations on species and habitat, and a table of fish counts based on the REEF level 1 fish census techniques; each file also references 3-4 digital image products (mpeg and jpegs) of representative events and habitat - Dive_Data folder on CD: this folder contains one folder-pics_videos-which contains the digital images from the 2001 Clelia dives; these were all grabbed from the video tapes as either still jpegs or mpeg clips; they are accessed via the shapefiles described below; they were chosen and captured by either J. Arcuri as part of the Clelia dive narratives, or by C. Manning in areas that he did topographic analysis of historic data - Geotif folder on CD: these are colored, shaded geotifs created by Seafloor Systems Inc. using 2002 multi-beam survey data; OculinaMain.tif/.tfw is for the southern portion of survey and OculinaAddOn.tif/.tfw is for the northwest survey lines - others may include other types of files including .sbn, .sbx, .prj, .plk

C. Manning created the original OGIS. As presented on the CD, it has 7 "default" views. Most contain some common data sets, e.g., boundaries of the OHAPC and a 5 min. grid for lat/long. In addition, each provides unique access to the following data:

1. 2001 Islands in the Stream Expedition-submersible Clelia and ROV dive data-photos, video clips, and fish counts-- from 2001 cruise to the OHAPC 2. Clelia Dive Tracks-detailed dive logs for 2001 Clelia dives 3. ROV dive tracks-detailed dive logs for 2001 ROV dives ???? is this a different set of dives??? 4. NOS bathymetry-color coded by depth chart from 1958-65 NOS hydrographic surveys 5. Additional Photos/Videos-access to additional digital images, above those available in View 1 6. Multi-beam survey-shaded, colored geotifs from 2002 multi-beam survey 7. Historical Data-tables of observations from past JSL submersible dive transects conducted by J. Reed ???? where are these data?

OGIS Shapefiles: The shapefile prefix in the following list of shapefiles is how the files (i.e., .shp, .shx, etc.) are named on the CD. The prefix is often followed in the list below by the theme label that C. Manning gave the theme (shapefile) in the views he chose to include in OGIS (these names do not always match the file name). If the filename prefix is not followed by a theme label, then it indicates that this shapefile was not used in Manningóóós default views listed above.

Manning using polylines - 78utm_transect-theme = 1978 transects: points, each linked to table of data from 1978 JSL submersible dives conducted by Dr. John Reed in 1978; data includes his station number and lat/long - alldives: point, non-interactive (can not hot link) table of digital images (jpgs) for each of 2001 Clelia dives; not used in any of default views - citrutm1-theme = Control: polygon, habitat type map drawn by K.

Manning and more photo/video images created; in OGIS all these point files are located in one View (Clelia Dive Tracks)

OGIS Shapefiles: The shapefile prefix in the following list of shapefiles is how the files (i.e., .shp, .shx, etc.) are named on the CD. The prefix is often followed in the list below by the theme label that C. Manning gave the theme (shapefile) in the views he chose to include in OGIS (these names do not always match the file name). If the filename prefix is not followed by a theme label, then it indicates that this shapefile was not used in Manningóóós default views listed above.
