Translating coastal analysis into spatial boundaries can be a manual and time-consuming process. This presentation explores a standardized, automated methodology for creating high-accuracy boundaries. Using ESRI tools, reinforced by the WISE Terrain Analyst toolset, the automation of key mapping aspects (data setup, boundary creation, QAQC) becomes easily accessible and repeatable, allowing the user to focus less on tedious tasks and more on qualitative aspects of mapping and visualization.
