Pinnacle’s key scientific personnel have been professionally trained to analyze video and still photography using numerous analytical methods to quantify benthic composition including, but not limited to various random point count methods and software (i.e., Coral Point Count), image analysis software (i.e., OptimasTM and SigmaScanTM), and in situ quantification methodologies.

Together the team at Pinnacle has conducted over 300 diver video and still photography surveys to identify biota, characterize and map habitats, assess impacts to environmental resources, and to quantify benthic composition of seagrasses and hardbottom habitats.
