Scientific project: near coast reef mapping

Picture below shows an image taken before hurricane Ivan. I have geo-referenced it using smimming pools as anchor points. Look at the coastal line and the reef in front of the beach.
Yellow line is the transcect across the dying reef. The coral imagegy taken underwater is stored for future mapping. Point 009 is a high-res image of a surviving reef structure. The Google-Earth files can be downloaded here and here.
