Data Quality

Accuracy:

unconfirmed records of observations from historical sources | Quantitative Value: Unknown | Quantitative Test Explanation: none

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

none; Quantitative Value: 0.0 meters, Test that produced the value: none

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

none; Quantitative Value: 0.0 meters, Test that produced the value: none

Completeness Report:

Observations record only where surveys have been conducted. Absence of an observation should not be interpreted as absence of corals.

Conceptual Consistency:

These records were obtained from historical sources and are not confirmed or validated
