The Unified Reef Map provides a seamless coverage of benthic habitats across the Florida reef tract by integrating regional habitat maps from Martin County to the Dry Tortugas.
The Unified Reef Map is a regional map of benthic habitats, or bottom types, that occur throughout the Florida reef tract. The Unified Reef Map consists of individual maps and relevant monitoring data provided by our numerous partners. The purpose of the Unified Reef Map is to provide a “big picture” view of benthic habitats from Martin County through the Florida Keys to the Dry Tortugas. The Unified Reef Map is part of a larger project to coordinate scientific research and promote a reef-wide approach for protecting Florida’s reef tract.
