V Makota, R Sallema, C Mahika

Abstract


Key words: remote sensing, geographic information system (GIS), aerial photographs, shoreline change

Data from aerial photographs taken in 1981, 1992 and 2002 of the Kunduchi shoreline off the Dar es Salaam coast were integrated in a geographic information system (GIS) to determine shoreline change in that locality. It was found that considerable changes have taken place, and that the two techniques are effective for shoreline monitoring.
