  • Bathymetric surveys (sea bed mapping)
  • Topographic beach surveys
  • Aerial photography
  • LiDAR height data
  • Ecological habitat mapping
  • Coastal asset data

More information is available at the South West Coastal Monitoring website.

The South West data is hosted on the National Coastal website which contains all the data collected by all the Regional Coastal Monitoring Programmes.
