Norfolk Island Marine Habitat Mapping

A project to map the nearshore marine habitats around Norfolk Island under the Commonwealth Government’s Our Marine Parks – Round 2 Community Grants program has been completed. The on-Island project team comprised Margaret Christian, Rob Ryan and Mitchell Graham with external support and project management provided by Dr Kellie (Lorking) Pendoley of Pendoley Environmental PL (Perth). The initial phase of the project produced high-level habitat maps from satellite imagery, merged with high quality LIDAR mapping data (completed in 2021). These drafts were ground-truthed and amended in accordance with feedback from the community.

Click on the map and then the markers for their associated images. We thank Scott Pendoley for IT support.
