Maps used throughout the Representative Areas Program

  • Sediment Composition in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area - Map showing the occurrence of calcareous sediments and biota in sediment samples.
  • Regionalisation of Sponge Fauna based upon Classification Analysis - The sponge fauna regionalisation was derived from statistical ‘classification analysis’, which groups sites according to the (sponge) taxa that have been found there. The result divides the Marine Park into 10 regions. The boundaries between some of these regions are more ‘fuzzy’ than others, as indicated on the map.
