Abstract: Shoreline mapping is extremely important in order to determine the dynamic nature of coastal areas. This paper presents shoreline mapping of the Sagar Island delta, Sundarban region, India. The island is part of mangrove ecosystem and is facing constant erosion and deposition from tidal action and cyclonic storms which have made this an area of unique importance. Mapping of shoreline has been performed 1951 to 2011 and change in the land-water boundary of the island calculated. Further shoreline prediction is performed on the basis of the extracted shorelines using the End point Rate model with a micro-level grid-based approach. The predicted maps have been validated using ground control points. Three images from 1951, 1990 and 2011 have been used for the mapping and detection of changes in the island area and shoreline over 60 years. © 2014 Sananda Kundu.
