GIS Map of Mosaicked LandSat 7 ETM+ Satellite Imagery of the Marshall Islands, Micronesia Federated States, and the Republic of Palau from January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2003 (NODC Accession 0067475)

These maps show for the first time an accurate georeferenced mosaic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau and their respective corresponding shallow water areas. Shallow-water (generally, less than 30 meters) bank and land areas in these areas were identified through analysis of Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite imagery. The mosaics are laid over ETOPO2 Bathymetric Data to provide an enhanced understanding of how the Atolls and Islands fit together. In addition selected islands and atolls are shown next to the mosaic. This project was conducted in support of the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force.

Data in this accession are best used with appropriate Geographic Information System (GIS) software.

Supplemental Information
These data were forwarded to NODC from the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation System (CRCP) Coral Reef Information System (CoRIS) project. Steve Rohmann forwarded data to CoRIS and NODC on behalf of Arthur Patterson.

Additional detailed metadata are available in text (.txt) files from the data provider in the data/0-data/FAS/Metadata/ directory and in the about/ directory.
Purpose The National Ocean Service is conducting research to digitally map biotic resources and coordinate a long-term monitoring program that can detect and predict change in U.S. coral reefs, and their associated habitats and biological communities. This project was conducted in support of the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force (http://coralreef.gov).
