Resource Description: Digital video imagery that is geo-referenced to navigation files.
Spreadsheets containing location and time data were then used to classify benthic habitat for each tow using the Pacific Coral Reef Ecosystem Benthic Habitat Mapping classification scheme (PIBHMC_tow). Five points were classified at 30 second intervals and codes were inputted into spreadsheet. Spreadsheet was saved as dbase file, imported into ArcGIS, and saved as a shapefile. Percent scleractinian coral was column symbolized in Optical Validation maps with underlying fields of different substrates contained within the attribute table of the shapefile. For more information on classification methods, refer to the PIBHMC website ftp://ftp.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/website/webdocs/documentation/Optical-Proc-Overview.pdf For more information on the classification scheme, refer to the PIBHMC website ftp://ftp.soest.hawaii.edu/pibhmc/website/webdocs/documentation/Benth-Habitat-Class-Codes.htm
