Description GrandBay_2010_Shoreline.zip features a digitized historical shoreline for the Grand Bay, Mississippi (MS) coastline (Pascagoula, MS to Point aux Pins, Alabama [AL]) derived from 2010 aerial imagery. Imagery of the Mississippi and Alabama coastlines was acquired from the National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) and the city of Mobile, AL. Using ArcMap 10.3.1, the imagery was used to delineate and digitize the historical shoreline as either the Wet Dry Line (WDL) along sandy beaches or the vegetation edge along the marsh coastline at a scale of 1:1000. This shoreline was digitized for use in long-term shoreline and wetland analyses and physical change assessment. [More]
