Applied Coastal provides high level information technology services via the World Wide Web. Geographic information services are used extensively for data analysis and management for most projects. Most government clients want project information available on the web. This varies from basic project descriptions to database access and analysis of coastal processes data sets. Applied Coastal personnel design and implement technical web sites for delivering geographic and oceanographic processes information on a proprietary basis and to the public sector. Digital data delivery for project reports, data sets, and numerical output has become an integral component of project deliverables. We rely on state-of-technology equipment for serving clients at high speed and relatively low cost.

Applied Coastal personnel developed a data delivery and aerial photography tutorial site for the U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC), Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) that provides details on baseline project information at inlets maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The site contains five primary components: 1) a description of inlet/beach processes and morphology, and engineering activities, with photographic examples at selected Federal inlets; 2) a glossary of technical terms related to inlets, beaches, and navigation channels; 3) high-resolution digital aerial photography for varying time periods at each Federal inlet, including a description of engineering activities at the inlet; 4) a tutorial on feature interpretation from aerial photography, including rectification techniques and the application of GIS tools; and 5) access to a series of analytical routines for analysis of coastal data. Another site developed for Unocal focuses on management and analysis of current meter data collected in support of marine drilling operations around the world. Proprietary users are able to view time series measurements throughout the water column using web-based MatLab routines that provide baseline statistical summaries for each sensor and data collection location as well.
