Search coastal data and information

Undertake a simple search to obtain data and information on a specified coastal region or search for estuaries within political boundaries or bio-regions and/or on the basis of geomorphology, condition status, geometry and other physical variables. The map search allows you to both query the database and to generate customised maps using a comprehensive set of map layers (e.g. topography, habitats, Landsat). You can also down-load datasets and publications and search for useful hyperlinks as they pertain to coastal stakeholders, regional plans & strategies and other coastal information (e.g. coastal legislation, protected areas and policy and planning).
