Layer: Biological Cover (ID: 110)

Parent Layer: St. Croix USVI, STEER/Fish Bay/Coral Bay (2013)

Name: Biological Cover

Display Field: ZONE

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Twelve unique (i.e., major plus detailed) biological cover classes were mapped by interpreting aerial photos and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) imagery using manual and semi-automated methods. Biological cover denotes the dominant biological component colonizing the surface of the feature. It does not describe the location (e.g., on the Bank/Shelf or in a Lagoon) or structure (e.g., Sand) of the feature. Habitat features smaller than the 100 m2 were not considered. Five major cover types were identified from the source imagery (i.e., Algae, Live Coral, Seagrass, Mangrove, and No Cover) and combined with three modifiers describing the distribution of the dominant cover within the polygon (i.e.,10%-50%, 50%-90%, and 90%-100%). "Unclassified" denotes that the dominant biological cover type for an area is not included in this habitat classification scheme (e.g., deciduous forest). "Unknown" indicates that the biological cover was indistinguishable in the aerial orthophotos or LiDAR imagery due to interference with the signature of the seafloor.
