Welcome to Oregon ShoreZone

Oregon ShoreZone is a project that builds upon several decades of previous work. There are existing ShoreZone projects covering the shorelines of Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington. The addition of Oregon to the ShoreZone family extends this valuable dataset from the Columbia River mouth down to the California border.
