Distribution of Benthic Habitats at Crocker Reef, Florida, 2014

By David G. Zawada, Kristin H. Netchy, Jessica P. Resnick

Summary

The distribution of benthic habitats for a 1-km x 1-km area around Crocker Reef in the Florida Key is based upon underwater digital images of the seafloor collected June 24-25, 2014. The imagery was collected using the USGS shallow Along-Track Reef Imaging System (sATRIS), a boat-based, pole-mounted sensor package for mapping shallow-water benthic environments.  The polygons contained in this shapefile represent the 4 general habitat types found at Crocker Reef:  hardbottom, rubble, sand, and seagrass.

For further information regarding data collection methods refer to DOI: 10.2112/JCOASTRES-D-12-00078.1

The shallow ATRIS imagery is available in USGS data release http://dx.doi.org/10.5066/F7SF2T9Z
