Review of U.S. Tide-Coordinated Shoreline.
Degree: MS, Geodetic Science and Surveying, 2010, The Ohio State University
Shoreline mapping is of critical importance for
coastal communities. It supports nautical charting, coastal zone
management, legal boundary determination, analyzing shoreline
erosion and other threats of climate change, and a host of other
applications. A tide-coordinated shoreline is representative of the
shoreline at certain tidal stage, e.g., Mean Lower-Low Water (MLLW)
or Mean High Water (MHW). Since the establishment of the Survey of
the Coast in 1807, mapping of tide-coordinated shorelines has been
a challenging operation. In the past, analog devices, such as plane
tables and telemeter rods, had been used in mapping the
tide-coordinated shoreline for nautical chart production. Although
shoreline mapping from such techniques provided high-quality
shoreline, the procedure requires massive amount of time, manpower
and budget. The standard method to map tide-coordinated shorelines
was later shifted to aerial photogrammetry in 1927. Advantages of
conducting coastal surveys using aerial photogrammetry over the
conventional ground survey include enabling surveying of large
areas in a short time, while maintaining good accuracy. Today,
approaches to tide-coordinated shoreline involve recent advances in
technologies and methods, including global positioning system
(GPS), light detection and ranging (LIDAR), satellite imagery, and
auto-feature extraction from imagery. Additionally, LIDAR has
currently begun to be utilized in NOAAâs national shoreline
production for MHW shoreline, along with MLLW shoreline from
photogrammetric compilation deriving tidally-referenced aerial
imagery. This thesis discusses coastal mapping and surveying work
focused on approaches to tide-coordinated shoreline. A brief
history of shoreline mapping in the United States, dating back to
the early era of U.S. coastal survey, is presented as well as
current standard procedures of tide-coordinated shoreline mapping,
including quality of work and efficiency of the work process.
Definitions of a shoreline and some of its variations, usually
misinterpreted and misused, are addressed to give a basic
understanding. Implementations of modern technologies and methods
in derivation of tide-coordinated shoreline will then be reviewed
and discussed regarding the accuracy and efficiency of the
shoreline products. Finally, trends and developments of
tide-coordinated shoreline mapping approaches regarding
advancements of technologies in the future are analyzed and
discussed in the thesis.
