Management of highly dynamic coastal landscapes requires repeated mapping and analysis of observed changes. Modern remote sensing techniques, such as lidar, increased the frequency and level of detail in coastal surveys and new methods were developed to extract valuable information from these data using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In this chapter we discuss mapping of coastal change, on-line data resources, and the basics of installation and working with open source GRASS GIS used in this book.
