South Coast: Nearshore Substrate Mapping Using Multi-Spectral Aerial Imagery:SCR_Aerial_SantaCatalinaIslandNorth_12072011_KelpClass:2011 to 2011

These raster and vector datasets were developed for the Sea Grant South Coast MPA Baseline Program as part of the project “Nearshore Substrate Mapping and Change Analysis using Historical and Concurrent Multispectral Imagery” (#R/MPA 30 10-049). The study region is the South Coast Region (SCR). Ocean Imaging acquired this imagery on 12/07/2011 using the Digital Multispectral Camera (DMSC). Details on this system and the data processing are below in the Lineage section of this document. Details on this system and the data processing are below in the Lineage section of this document. Individual DMSC image tiles were mosaicked into sections based on the islands covered and local coastal regions as well as the SCR MPA zones in order to generate this multispectral image product. These imagery were subsequently used to generate habitat classification thematic maps of the SCR's kelp beds from Point Conception to Imperial Beach, CA. The imagery files deliverd are in GeoTIFF format.
This raster dataset contains a habitat classification of either offshore giant kelp beds along the California South Coast Region (SCR) from from Point Conception, CA down to Imperial beach, CA. This specific raster classification includes the Long Point SMR, Blue Cavern SMCA and Arrow Point to Lion Head SMCA.
