Midway landcover 2010Jan14

This dataset contains a raster-based landcover map for Midway Atoll as of Jan 14, 2010. Landcover is classified into 9 different categories including various types of vegetation, bare ground, beach, and human structures. These categories were created using manual digitizing and unsupervised classification techniques on a DigitalGlobe WorldView-2 satellite image taken January 14, 2010.

Midway Atoll Coastline 2010Jan 14

This dataset contains a screen-digitized coastline for Midway Atoll (Sand, Eastern, and Spit Islands) based on a DigitalGlobe WorldView-2 satellite image taken on January 14, 2010. The digitized coastline was not corrected for tide since no digital elevation model was available at the time the image was collected. Like most of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, this coastline is very

Laysan Island coastline 2010May18

This dataset contains a screen-digitized coastline for Laysan Island based on a DigitalGlobe WorldView-2 satellite image taken on May 18, 2010. After digitization the coastline was corrected for tide using a 1-meter digital elevation model (DEM). It was also smoothed in ArcGIS 10 to remove some of the inherent jaggedness from the point-by-point digitizing process. Like most of the Northwest...

Midway Atoll Hatch Year 2012 Black-footed Albatross Survey Areas

Approximately one-third of the global population of black-footed albatrosses (Phoebastria nigripes) nest at Midway Atoll in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. As part of an effort to monitor albatross at this globally important site, USFWS personnel and volunteers conduct an annual, spatially-explicit, atoll-wide albatross census during the peak nesting when albatrosses are attending an

Laysan Island inundation area during 2011 tsunami

This GIS shapefile delineates the approximate inundation extent on Laysan Island during the March 11, 2011 tsunami event that originated off the Tohoku coast of Japan. The high water mark was created from a GPS track file of the debris line taken on March 12, 2011, the day after the tsunami. The coastline at the time of the tsunami was estimated based on the location of the coastline as vie...

Midway Atoll Albatross Survey Sectors

Three albatross species breed at Midway Atoll: black-footed (Phoebastria nigripes), Laysan (P. immutabilis), and short-tailed (P. albatrus). This dataset contains the boundaries of survey area sectors used during the USFWS albatross censuses at Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. The entire area of the atoll is divided into 61 unequal-area sectors. Sector boundaries were esta
