Ningaloo Hyvista remote sensing lagoonal habitat data

Posted on 24 January 2013

In 2006 the marine habitats of the Ningaloo fringing reef in north-western Australia were mapped at high spatial and thematic resolution for the first time. The reef, spanning three degrees of latitude, and covering 762 km2 was mapped to 20 m depth using HyMap airborne hyperspectral imagery at 3.5 m resolution.
