Temperate climate and easy access to the ocean's resources have made the world's coastal zones—where the land meets the sea—desirable habitats. GIS software helps researchers measure change in the oceans along coasts and better understand the places where so many people live.

Esri’s software development teams are constantly extending and improving ArcGIS software for marine applications that explore the dynamic properties of shoreline and coastal processes. These advancements in GIS technology have helped broaden the framework for coastal GIS analyses, that, because of the intensity of human activities, encompass a range of disciplines including basic and applied science and policy and management.
