Abstract

This project is part of the CSIRO Flagship Wealth from Oceans, Ningaloo Cluster: “Reef use, biodiversity and socio economics for integrated management strategy evaluation of Ningaloo”. This project is run from Murdoch University in collaboration with Curtin and Queensland Universities. Airborne hyperspectral data have been acquired by HyVista through the efforts of AIMS and sponsored by BHP Billiton.

The project is focusing on the mapping of habitats and biodiversity of the Ningaloo Marine Park. This is being achieved through a combination of state-of-the-art hyperspectral remote sensing techniques, coupled with biodiversity field surveys of the area.
