Alaska Coastal Profile Tool (ACPT)

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

Elevation profiles are a type of temporal data that can be used to understand coastal environments, document change and assess vulnerability. The value of these shore-normal measurements increases when sites are revisited seasonally and/or interannually due to the dynamic range of coastal landforms. These static measurements of the shoreface have been collected by a number of stakeholders in Alaska since the 1960s, but, have not historically been published or readily accessible. In cooperation with the Alaska Ocean Observing System, the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) has designed a universal repository to house these coastal measurements. This new database has an interactive map interface that enables easy access to existing profile locations to encourage repeat observations. The database has been designed to accommodate data sets collected with differing techniques, including differential leveling, survey-grade GPS or extraction from digital elevation models. Non-DGGS profile measurements, including community-led efforts, and data sets from state, federal and academic partners have also been incorporated into the database. Contributions from other entities are welcomed. The readily-accessible nature of this database is intended to promote partner and local involvement in community-based coastal monitoring.
