Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Six types of coastlines interpretation indicators and position extraction rules were established based on a combination of the Landsat TM//OLI data of 40 scenes (with a full coverage of Hainan Island) for eight periods during 1987 – 2017 and field measurement data. The position and type of coastlines are extracted by visual interpretation and digital vectorization, by using ENVI 5.2 and ArcGIS 10.1 software. Then the coastline dataset of Hainan Island was generated after careful verification and modification. The datasets can be used to analyze the temporal and spatial variation of the coastlines historical changes in time series, or to study the characteristics of coastline exploitation and the evolution of land and sea pattern. The complete coastline dataset clearly shows the conditions of the coastal environmental changes on the coastline aspects of Hainan Island.
