The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) maintains shoreline positions for the United States coasts from both older sources, such as aerial photos or topographic surveys, as well as contemporary sources like lidar point clouds and digital elevation models (DEMs). These shorelines are compiled and analyzed in the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) software to compute rates of change. It is useful to keep a record of historical shoreline positions as a method of monitoring change over time to identify areas most susceptible to erosion or accretion. These data can help coastal managers understand which areas of the coast are vulnerable to change. This data release and other associated products represent an expansion...

The Physical Shore-Zone Mapping System is a scheme designed for the classification of the materials, forms and processes that occur or operate along the coast of British Columbia. It has been specifically developed to provide an inventory of the physical character of the shore-zone and to show their distribution, extent ad location. The system is scale independent and provides base data applicable for a wide range of natural resource applications including planning, management, impact assessment and oil spill response.
