This module provides detailed coastal landform and landform sensitivity mapping for the entire continental Australian coastline, using a line map format for which the project team has coined the term ‘Smartline’. The smartline incorporates elements of the Australian Beach Safety & Management Program (ABSAMP) beach database which provides information on every beach in Australia.

Coastal Landform Stability Class Search; Simple and Advanced Smartline Geomorphic Search
Conduct a search on an extensive range of geomorphological and geological qualifiers and find coastal regions that meet the criteria you select; make a line-map in which each line segment includes multiple attribute fields that describe important aspects of the geomorphology; make a line-map of the sensitivity of the coast to the potential impacts of climate change and sea level rise, including shoreline erosion.
