About Beaches Data
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 the
Beaches, Inlets and Ports (BIP) Program. 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.
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. BIP staff 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.
should be noted that there may be profile data that is not yet available in the Historic Shoreline Data
due to time lags in the review process.
