Abstract Shoreline mapping has been a critical task for federal/state agencies and coastal communities. It supports important applications such as nautical charting, coastal zone management, and legal boundary determination. Current attempts to incorporate data from hyperspectral imagery to increase the efficiency and efficacy of shoreline mapping have been limited due to the complexity in processing its data as well as its inferior spatial resolution when compared to multispectral imagery or to sensors such as LiDAR. As advancements in remote-sensing technologies increase sensor capabilities, the ability to exploit the spectral formation carried in hyperspectral images becomes more imperative. This work employs a new approach to extracting shorelines from AVIRIS hyperspectral images by combination with a LiDAR-based DEM using a multiphase active contour segmentation technique. Several techniques, such as study of object spectra and knowledge-based segmentation for initial contour generation, have been employed in order to achieve a sub-pixel level of accuracy and maintain low computational expenses. Introducing a DEM into hyperspectral image segmentation proves to be a useful tool to eliminate misclassifications and improve shoreline positional accuracy. Experimental results show that mapping shorelines from hyperspectral imagery and a DEM can be a promising approach as many further applications can be developed to exploit the rich information found in hyperspectral imagery.
