dc.description.abstract Torres Strait has a rich and diverse marine environment with hundreds of islands and thousands of small coral reefs. It is an extension of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) that is often overlooked, possibly to due to a lack of openly available digital maps of the region. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) developed digital Geographic Information System (GIS) maps of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (GBRMP) in the 1980's to assist them with management and zoning development. This mapping dataset (GBR Features) has been widely used for research, for reference mapping and for public maps such as Google Maps. Unfortunately this mapping did not extend into Torres Strait and so this region appears blank in many of these maps. This project was developed to extend the mapping of the GBR into Torres Strait to allow the creation of a single consistent dataset covering the islands and marine features of the entire GBR. It was initiated to allow the processing of data from coral reef surveys in Torres Strait by the Eye on the Reef database run by GBRMPA and was developed as a collaboration between AIMS and TSRA. en_AU
