What: A GIS Based Inventory of Public Shoreline Access for Oahu

The shorelines of Hawai'i are vital to our sense of place and our tourism based

economy. While conducting outreach activities within the fishing community, it became

apparent shoreline access to fishing locations was a common concern. These concerns

included the lack of information about access locations and the loss of access due to

urban development. Shoreline access information for Oahu is not easily accessible or

comprehensive. The goal of this project is to make this information more

comprehensive and available to the fishing community, local government agencies, and

the ocean using community as a whole. The inventory is currently underway utilizing

GPS and GIS technology to accurately map shoreline access and record site specific

attribute information.
