Task 2.2: Conduct shoreline analysis

The SMP Guidelines require that local governments analyze the inventory information to characterize their shoreline. The analysis should be packaged as a shoreline inventory and characterization report with maps (Task 2.3). The report will be used to write SMP policies and regulations designed to achieve no net loss of ecological functions, and will form the basis for your shoreline restoration plan (Task 4.1).
