Detailed Description

The Shoreline Management Tool is a GIS-based application used to assess how changes in water depth can affect an area. This includes identifying areas that may flood when water reaches a certain level or estimating how much water is available at any given time. In addition, the Shoreline Tool can be used to identify habitat areas that are suitable for a certain type of plant or animal based on known conditions like water depth or surface gradient.
