Satellite-based high spatial resolution information on benthic habitats is essential for coral reef protection and coastal environmental management. The Planet Dove satellite constellation offers daily coverage at high spatial resolution (3.7 m) that can minimize cloud over tropical oceans where dense cloud cover persists. Daily image acquisition also provides an opportunity to detect time-sensitive changes in shallow benthic habitats following coral bleaching events, storms, and other disturbances. In this study, we developed an object-based mapping approach for coral reef habitats to be applied to Dove and similar multispectral satellites. This approach uses bathymetry estimation, bottom reflectance retrieval, and object-based classification to identify different benthic compositions in shallow coastal environments. View this paper.
