dc.descriptionTechnical note-
dc.descriptionPurpose: Knowledge of past and present shoreline changes is essential information for most planning and engineering projects in the coastal zone. This information can be obtained from either continuous field surveys or from current and historic maps and/or air photos. The latter does not require extensive field time nor expensive equipment and, therefore, is often the most economical means of obtaining shoreline change data. Historical maps dating back to the mid to late 1800's and air photos beginning in the 1930's are available for most of the U.S. shoreline, providing a length of record which is not usually available with field surveys.-
