Title: hab113_0401q -- Habitat polygons for HMPR-113-2004-01q survey in Olympic Coast national marine sanctuary.
Short Name: hab113_0401q
Status: In Work
Publication Date: 2007-05
Abstract:

Benthic habitat polygon coverages are being created for the Olympic Coast national marine sanctuary (OCNMS).ROV, towed camera sled, bathymetry data, sedimentary samples, and sonar mapping have been integrated to describe the geological, biological, and oceanographic aspects of habitat. OCNMS has collected side scan sonar and video data to produce polygon coverages. The habitat polygons have attributes for megahabitat, bottom induration, mesohabitat, macrohabitat and biology (where direct observations are available), polygon area and perimeter.

Purpose:

These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public. The data can be used with geographic information systems (GIS) software to display benthic information.

Data Quality

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Accuracy of the horizontal coordinates is on the order of 10-30m based on the uncertainty in position of side scan sonar tow fish relative to ships position. Horizontal layback is more accurate than lateral offsets, since any lateral offset in the tow fish position (due to side currents) is unaccounted for in the laybackcalculations.

Completeness Report:

Mesohabitat and macrohabitat observations are only populated where video or still frame data exist. Complexity field was not calculated since the resolution of the existing multibeam data in this area was not suitable.

Conceptual Consistency:

Polygon topology present. Each polygon has a label and all polygons are closed.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 498855
Description:

Geotiff images were converted to raw binary files and processed according to: Cochrane, G.R., and K.D. Lafferty, 2002. Use of acoustic classification of side scan sonar data for mapping benthic habitat in the Northern Channel Islands, California. Continental Shelf Research. 22: 683-690.Texture procedure was carried out on the sonar mosaic. After misclassified data was edited, the mosaic was imported into Leica Geosystems Imagine software where grey scale values were reclassified. Images were exported back to an geotiff format. The MajorityFilter command in ArcInfo (with Eight|Half parameters) was run on the image to reduce the number ofpolygons features, essentially smoothing the data through a neighborhood analysis. The raster image was then converted to polygon features in ArcInfo. Sediment grab data and video information were used as a validation tool. Where video data existed, polygons were manually split to attach microhabitat attributes.
