About Beaches Data
 

The beach profile data provided on this site is survey data collected by the Coastal Data and Analysis Program (CDA) and outside independent surveyors which has been reviewed for quality control by CDA and/or FSU Beaches and Shores Research Center (BSRC) engineers. The offshore portions of the profiles from wading depth seaward have generally NOT been quality checked by CDA and/or BSRC engineers. It is noted that a history of monument control information is not available on this site at this time. A large portion of the survey monuments have been moved over time as a result of changed conditions such as erosion or building construction. This is clearly indicated in the control headings in the profile data files. However, there have typically been several horizontal and vertical control surveys per county over time, resulting in multiple coordinate and vertical control values per range, which are not available here at this time.

The version of the beach profile data provided under the Coastal Data and Analysis Program of this web page is part of the Historic Shoreline Data link. CDA and BSRC engineers have reviewed this version for quality control. A standardized horizontal and vertical reference system is employed to maintain consistency and commonality of the data for analytical purposes. This data set will generally be the version that coastal engineers and scientists performing coastal analyses use.

It should be noted that there may be profile data  that is not yet available in the Historic Shoreline Data set due to time lags in the review process.
