“Our imagery replaces outdated, low resolution imagery found in developing countries like Belize. It allows us to see an incredibly high level of detail that opens up new mapping and analysis possibilities. Most importantly, we share our imagery for free with the public so that all can benefit from this resource in a manner that opens up science to broader society. All of our imagery is available for free on ArcGIS Online by searching for Open Reef,” said Timothy L. Hawthorne, Ph.D., assistant professor of GIS in the Department of Sociology and College of Sciences GIS Cluster.
