||"This report describes the methodologies, analyses, and results for an independent accuracy assessment of a thematic benthic habitat map produced by NOAA for the Lower Florida Keys. It is a reanalysis of a previous accuracy assessment for a different classification scheme. Over the course of the Florida Keys mapping project, NOAA amended part of the classification scheme. The original scheme for mapping benthic cover was a tiered approached where certain benthic cover categories were given priority over others (e.g. coral was most important) . Recently, this was modified to a dominant benthic cover scheme where the habitat is characterized by the single most dominant cover type and all habitats are characterized for percent cover of coral. No new data were collected for this effort. The exact same data and data analyses from Walker and Foster (2010) were used to evaluate the accuracy of the reclassified map. The same analyses are currently underway for accuracy assessment area 1 from Walker and Foster (2009)"--Executive summary.
