Multi-Dimensional Geospatial Data Integration for Coastal Change Analysis
Source: Ohio State University
Coastal change analysis, particularly of the variation in shorelines and blufflines, is critical for coastal disaster mitigation, environmental protection, resource management, and coastal development decision making. As data from a variety of sources has become more easily available, it is highly desirable to investigate a strategy for the integration of multi-dimensional geospatial data for coastal mapping and change analysis. This paper summarizes an investigation of techniques for integrating satellite images, aerial images, and LiDAR data for high precision coastal mapping.
