Digital Coast
Current statusOnline

The Digital Coast is an online resource that provides the data, tools, and training needed by coastal communities as they work to balance economic and environmental demands. The site is managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. Its targeted audience is the coastal management community, which includes planners, nonprofits, city officials, emergency management professionals, and many other professions and organizations. The goal is to keep the nation’s coasts safe from storms, rich in natural resources, and economically strong.

Digital Coast content comes from many sources, all of which are vetted by NOAA to ensure authoritative, high quality data and tools. The Digital Coast Partnership provides user insight to ensure relevance. Stories on this site highlight benefits that the Digital Coast has brought to specific coastal communities.

The Office for Coastal Management is housed within NOAA’s National Ocean Service, which provides “science-based services to position America's communities, economies, and ecosystems for the future.”[1]NOAA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce.


The Digital Coast platform delivers 5.5 trillion points of lidar, 37 terabytes of imagery, 800,000 square miles of land cover, more than 70 tools, 139 local-user examples, and over 100 trainings and learning resources. The site contains visualization tools, predictive tools, and tools that make data easier to find and use. Training courses are available online or can be brought to the user’s location.
