Abstract: The coastal zone represents varied and highly productive ecosystems. These ecosystems are under pressure on account of increased anthropogenic activity on the coast. It is necessary to protect these coastal ecosystems to ensure sustainable development. In most of the studies shorelines are manually digitized from satellite images and calculate the changes using remote sensing technology. GIS and RS technology has been recognized as one of the most dominant tool for quantifying the shoreline changes on temporal scales as it provides the information in digital form. ICMAM-PD has implemented a national project for monitoring the shoreline changes for entire Indian coast using satellite imageries to maintain a long-term database in GIS environment.
