    This is indeed the case with respect to remote sensing, mapping, and data-handling technologies, where remarkable advances in the development of satellite-positioning systems, terrestrial and marine mapping sensors, and the digital manipulation of mapping data using geographic information systems have Coastal mapping handbook book our ability to collect, distribute, analyze, and visualize geospatial data. With this increased understanding has also come a new appreciation for the complexity, sensitivity, and interconnectedness of the coastal zone system. Development planners or investors, for example, may be tempted to locate infrastructures needed for economic development along a line that looks the straightest and most convenient on the map. Haines, Tony LaVoi, W. The likelihood, location, and severity elements of certain natural hazards can be easily affected by human activities.

    The review of this report was overseen by Raymond A. Coastal Erosion Mapping and Management. Spherical surfaces when portrayed on a planimetric map are only accurate at the contact of the plane with the actual sphere surface; various cartographic projection techniques are used to reduce the distortion.

    Likewise, it is possible to significantly disturb a site within a high or extreme zone without causing a landslide. Another example is the location of the seismic intensity zone boundaries shown on Figure Journal of Coastal Research, 9: — If the price decreases, we will simply charge the lower price.
