Presentation Abstract

As part of the Beach Strategies project developed by the Estuary and Salmon Restoration Program (ESRP), Puget Sound Partnership, ESRP, and Coastal Geologic Services (CGS) developed a geospatial framework to integrate nearshore data for analyses. The Beach Strategies project developed a geodatabase to inform restoration and protection planning. The Nearshore Geospatial Framework was designed as a companion structure to the Beach Strategies data to facilitate consistent and scalable units of analysis across the region-wide dataset. The framework is a series of consistent polygons with variable characteristics in both aquatic and inland areas of the nearshore. The polygon structures include variable buffer widths for the aquatic and nearshore, and contributing upland areas for shoretypes and drift cells. In addition to providing analytical structure, the framework also links to existing long term monitoring spatial datasets. The Nearshore Geospatial Framework was developed to succeed the PSNERP Change Analysis framework which is not compatible with the Beach Strategies geodatabase due to updated drift cell mapping.

Developing a nearshore geospatial framework for recovery assessment and planning

As part of the Beach Strategies project developed by the Estuary and Salmon Restoration Program (ESRP), Puget Sound Partnership, ESRP, and Coastal Geologic Services (CGS) developed a geospatial framework to integrate nearshore data for analyses.
