We developed the CoastView app to provide access to hundreds of thousands of coastal images. Most of the images are a by-product of a program called ShoreZone that mapped the intertidal shorelines of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. The images are acquired using a low flying helicopter during the lowest tides of the year. The images are then used to classify coastal features in a geographic information system. For more about ShoreZone click here. We discovered that for most people the images are the most compelling product, so our challenge was to provide instant access to about a million images covering over 100,000 km of coastline on a mobile device. The result is the CoastView app that allows an interactive experience for viewing and exploring the coast, planning trips, and downloading images for offline travels.
Each of us has been inspired by the coast of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska in our personal, scientific, and adventure-seeking lives and we are excited to share this special place with you!
