Coastline Extractor

Data Processing Details


These data sets were converted into the GMT binary format from the MAPGEN "coast" format, an efficient binary format that compresses data by storing differences between adjacent coastline points.

The WVS data were stored with sufficient precision to resolve 50 m changes along the ground, while the NOAA data were stored with sufficient precision to resolve 1 m changes along the ground.
