GIS Map of Mosaicked LandSat 7 ETM+ Satellite Imagery of the Marshall Islands, Micronesia Federated States, and the Republic of Palau from January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2003 (NODC Accession 0067475)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

These maps show for the first time an accurate georeferenced mosaic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau and their respective corresponding shallow water areas. Shallow-water (generally, less than 30 meters) bank and land areas in these areas were identified through analysis of Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite imagery. The mosaics are laid over ETOPO2 Bathymetric Data to provide an enhanced understanding of how the Atolls and Islands fit together. In addition selected islands and atolls are shown next to the mosaic. This project was conducted in support of the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force.

Data in this accession are best used with appropriate Geographic Information System (GIS) software.
