Interdisciplinary Baseline Ecosystem Assessment Surveys to Inform Ecosystem-Based Management Planning in Timor-Leste

The datasets collected or generated by the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program for Timor-Leste as described in the Interdisciplinary Baseline Ecosystem Assessment Surveys to Inform Ecosystem-Based Management Planning in Timor-Leste: Final Report are organized below according to the corresponding data chapters (Chapters 2-4) in the report (Satellite Mapping, Coral Reef Ecosystem Assessments, and Ecological Baselines for Climate Change, respectively).

Click on the thumbnail images to view the full-sized version of the images.

For each dataset, a brief description is provided along with links to view the data documentation (metadata) in InPort (the NOAA Fisheries Enterprise Data Management Program) and to download the data from the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) data archive.

***Some datasets are currently being processed for archival and are therefore not yet available. Once a dataset is accessioned and published it will be accessible online via NCEI. In the interim, contact the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program at nmfs.pic.credinfo@noaa.gov for access to the data.

Satellite Mapping

SATELLITE MAPPING Contains the satellite mapping datasets described in Chapter 2.
Image Catalog:  satellite image inventory in ESRI geodatabase format

WorldView-2 satellite image inventory in ESRI geodatabase format (GDB), and includes all images purchased, as well as the image footprints and regions of interest used to define the geographic areas to acquire the satellite imagery. The attributes indicate if the images were georeferenced and used to derive depths and habitat classes.
