Layer: Biological Cover (ID: 3)

Name: Biological Cover

Display Field: Area

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Ten unique (i.e., major plus detailed) biological cover classes were mapped by visually interpreting aerial photos and acoustic imagery. 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 1000 m2 were not considered. Four major cover types were identified from the source imagery (i.e., Algae, 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 structure type was indistinguishable in the aerial orthophotos or acoustic imagery due to interference with the signature of the seafloor.
