Abstract

This paper describes seagrass and ocean colour mapping off Peninsular Malaysia. The seagrass were extracted from visible bands of Landsat TM using the depth invariant index of the scabottom type. The ocean colour which much referred to plankton concentration is derived by regressing samples from known site collected at time of satellite overpass. Out these information were then input into GIS database which were also being established to assist the Marine Fisheries Management and Development Centre in managing and monitoring coastal areas This paper also addresses the experience gained in building spatial database for coastal areas various dala collected from various mapping environments were carried out.
