Objectives
Hong Kong's coastline and inshore waters are being reclaimed and polluted to an increasing degree. This study is a survey of Hong Kong's coastline identifying all its important features. Data are entered into a GIS database and will eventually be converted into maps and other visual images, including virtual reality. The ultimate aim is the production of a management strategy for the territory's coastline.
