Abstract/Description: Normal color digital ortho-photos with six inch resolution were used to test thefeasibility of mapping the habitat of the Florida apple snail, the exclusive foodsource of the Endangered Florida snail kite. Several remote sensing techniquessuch as unsupervised and supervised classifications are evaluated and accuracyassessed. While the overall ability to classify apple snail habitat is significant,sparse areas of emergent vegetation which are preferred foraging areas for the kitewere excluded by the classification and needed to be re-introduced for furtheranalysis. The methodology can be repeated to measure change over time since theNC imagery of Grassy Waters Preserve is acquired frequently. Additionally, threespectral levels of density abundance of wetland graminoid species that denote applesnail habitat were examined for mapping potential on the imagery. A site suitabilityanalysis using a weighed overlay tool in ArcGIS is suggested as a means to includenumerous other key factors influencing habitat selection by the snail kite in amapping project.
