Shoreline Mapping - St Vincent

Event date: 
2 January 2021

In collaboration with the framework of the government-funded Commonwealth Marine Economies (CME) programme, we have made available shoreline change data in St Vincent and the Grenadines, our first test to measure change over non-beachy shorelines. We assess the capabilities of Sentinel-1 SAR and Sentinel-2 optical satellite data as a rapid method for mapping and quantify changes in shoreline over the period 2016 to 2020.

The data is now available on our data portal here in shapefile and geodatabase format.
