Abstract:

This vegetation line represents the trend of annually stable significant vegetation on beach faces in Hawaii for the islands of Kauai, Maui, and Oahu as identified using digital 0.5-m orthorectified aerial photography dating from 2005-2008. This is a proxy for where state agencies measure their construction setback from and thereby represents current coastal conditions.

Data produced in 2012 by the Coastal Geology Group (CGG) of Dr. Charles "Chip" Fletcher at the department of Geology & Geophysics (G&G) in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Purpose:

PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

Protocol: OGC:WMS-C
Description: Open Geospatial Consortium Web Map Service - Cached (WMS-C). Use of WMS-C is similar to traditional WMS but with the addition of the "tiled=true" parameter, which triggers GeoServer to pull map tiles from GeoWebCache if they have been previously generated. This can dramatically improve performance, especially for larger datasets. Supported map formats include JPEG and PNG. Supported info formats include GeoJSON, GML, HTML, and plain text.
