You might want to check out CPCe (Coral Point Count with Excel extensions) 
provided by the National Coral Reef Institute. It's a Windows-based program 
that provides a tool for the determination of coral cover and diversity 
using transect photographs and the random point count method. There are 
also tools for image calibration and planar area analysis.

CPCe is provided free for scientific institutions. More information is 
available at http://www.nova.edu/ocean/cpce/.
