Description The Washington Shoreline Public Access Project is a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) project that identifies the degree of public access, location, and length of Washington State’s marine (saltwater) beaches. The final product can be used to find areas where public access to the shore is limited. The Shoreline Public Access data can also be combined with various data sets to gain a better understanding of the makeup of shoreline that is held in the public trust. In this poster presentation, we describe the data development process, discuss major findings, and investigate other potential uses of this new GIS data set.

The poster was presented at the 2009 Puget Sound Georgia Basin Ecosystem Conference in Seattle, February 8-11, 2009.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
