Habitat Classification Data of Five Bays Along the West Coast of Baja California, Mexico

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Provided here are raster geospatial data from five bays along the west coast of the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico (Bahia San Quintin, Laguna Ojo de Liebre, Estero Coyote, Laguna San Ignacio, and Estero San Juanito). The raster data in two folders: 1) "habitat_classifiedRaster_baja_ward": GeoTIFF files characterizing the habitat distribution of seagrass beds, salt marshes, and mangroves, derived from satellite imagery and aerial photomosaics, and 2) "aerialPhotomosaic_baja_ward": the orthorectified aerial photomosiacs used in analysis. At Laguna San Ignacio, Estero Coyote, and Estero San Juanito habitat classification was derived from aerial photos acquired in January 2000. At Laguna Ojo de Liebre habitat classification was derived from Landsat-5 imagery acquired in 1999. At Bahia San Quinitin habitat classification was derived from Spot-1 satellite imagery acquired in 1987 and Landsat-5 imagery acquired in 2000, 2011, and 2014.
