NOAA Continually Updated Shoreline Product (CUSP)

NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) has developed an ambitious project—the Continually Updated Shoreline Product (CUSP)—to provide the most current shoreline representation of the United States and its territories.

NOAA’s Continually Updated Shoreline includes all national shoreline that has been verified by contemporary imagery and shoreline from other non-NOAA sources. This shoreline vector only includes shoreline and alongshore features that represent shoreline (groin, breakwater, and jetty).

This data set was created to deliver continuous shoreline with frequent updates to support various GIS applications including coastal and marine spatial planning, tsunami and storm surge modeling, hazard delineation and mitigation, environmental studies and may assist in nautical chart updates.
