PWTB 200-1-114 GPS-Based Underwater Video Mapping for Aquatic Threatened and Endangered Species Habitat  


This PWTB gives an overview on how underwater video mapping can be used to create a continuous river habitat map along extended river sections and to identify river sections requiring more intensive surveys. This document describes a river survey to acquire georeferenced video images, to develop GIS maps of the river sections, and to use aquatic habitat maps for determining optimal habitat locations for the Rayed Bean mussel(Vilosa fabalis).
