    This map represents geomorphic marine habitats of countries in the Southeastern Caribbean. It was created by the Allen Coral Atlas, a global-scale coral reef habitat mapping project that is using Planet Dove 3.7m resolution daily satellite imagery (in combination with wave models and ecological data) to create consistent global coral reef habitat maps with the purpose of supporting science and conservation. The Allen Coral Atlas used a classifciation system of twelve Global Geomorphic Zones that are known to be fairly consistent across different biogeographic regions, and often associated with regionally distinct ecological assemblages of benthic animals and plants. Moreover, geomorphic classes like these have been shown to be reliable predictors of biological habitat richness and diversity.

    This map shows the benthic marine habitats surrounding countries in the Southeastern Caribbean. This map is originally part of the wider Allen Coral Atlas Global Benthic Habitat Maps dataset found at www.allencoralatlas.org. The Allen Coral Atlas dataset maps the benthic habitat for the world's shallow coral reefs at 5 m pixel resolution. The Allen Coral Atlas brings together partners from Planet, University of Queensland, Arizona State University's Center for Global Discovery and Conservation Science (GDCS), the National Geographic Society and Vulcan Inc. to take high resolution satellite imagery and advanced analytics to map and monitor the world's coral reefs in unprecedented detail. Global Benthic Habitat Maps characterise different coral reef bottom types. These bottom types include communities of living organisms attached to the reef (benthos), as well as sediments and underlying substrate. The six Allen Coral Atlas Global Benthic Habitat Map classes used were developed by Roelfsema et al 2013* with input from other coral reef benthic classifications. This classification maximizes the breadth of information available from Planet Dove remote sensing data to create the best set of classes to support users. *Chris Roelfsema, Stuart Phinn, Stacy Jupiter, James Comley, and Simon Albert. 2013.
