Mapping tools: Habitat Digitizer Extension

Developed by NOAAs Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment Biogeography group the Habitat Digitizer Extension is designed to use a hierarchical classification scheme to delineate habitats by visually interpreting georeferenced images such as aerial photographs, satellite images, and side scan sonar. The extension allows users to create custom classification schemes and rapidly delineate and attribute polygons, lines, and points using simple menus. The extension allows new hierarchical classification schemes to be easily created, modified, and saved for use on future mapping projects.

Looking for independent review of this tool by users!
