Title: Northwest Hawaiian Islands: Maps and Imagery
Url: http://ccma.nos.noaa.gov/ecosystems/sanctuaries/nwhi/nwhi_atlas.aspx
Publisher: Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (U.S.).
United States. Dept. of Commerce.
Description: Released by the Remote Sensing Team (part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), these detailed maps released in February 2003 focus on the Northwest Hawaiian Islands. This part of the island chain extends across over 2200 kilometers of open ocean, and the total shallow water area of the ten atolls encompasses over 8000 square kilometers. Most of the information for these maps was obtained through the use of high-resolution satellite imagery, along with field data collected during 2001. For each of the ten atolls covered in this project, visitors can read a brief description and history, along with viewing maps generated from the satellite images and the habitat cover of each particular atoll. Those seeking to learn more about the map development process will be pleased to find a document on this subject, and a description of the classification scheme used in the maps.
