|Description||This report describes how to use the Channel Migration Toolbox, a set of ArcGIS® tools that automates the measurement of stream channel migration. Lateral movement of stream channels is typically measured in support of Channel Migration Zone (CMZ) mapping, a requirement for Shoreline Master Programs. CMZs are management tools that help evaluate erosion hazards and habitat potential along streams. The toolbox is attached as a zip file.|
