Schematic Images of how sediment texture and distribution data were mapped qualitatively in ArcGIS by using a hierarchical methodology. Backscatter data were the first input, followed by bathymetry, surficial geologic and shallow stratigraphic interpretations, and photograph and sample databases. DEM, digital elevation model. From Pendleton and others (2013).
