Layer: Topographic Complexity (ID: 123)

Parent Layer: Northeast Ecological Corridor Reserve, Puerto Rico (2014)

Name: Topographic Complexity

Display Field: M_STRUCT

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Topographic Complexity capture the structural complexity of hardbottom habitats as observed from the underwater videos. This allows for rugosity/complexity measures at a finer scale than the available bathymetric data (resolution 4 -100 meter) supports. The Topographic Complexity category includes a combination of both fine scale structures like individual hard corals and barrel sponges as well as larger scale structures such as walls, mounds and ledges. Only hardbottom structures were accounted for so additional complexity added by soft corals, mangroves, algae and seagrass beds were not included. Softbottom habitats were classified in the very low complexity category. The Topographic Complexity information presented here is best viewed together with available bathymetry derived rugosity layers as they can complement each other. Topographic Complexity was determined by analyzing remotely sensed imagery and underwater videos. This layer is to be considered experimental since this mapping effort is the first time this approach has been tested by the Biogeography Branch.
