The Coastal Hazard Wheel App

Coastal management app based on open access

The Coastal Hazard Wheel App is available as a web viewer operated by Deltares. It currently provides global coastal classification information and adaptation guidance with low-moderate accuracy and focuses on erosion hazards. The App makes use of 'big data' processes and advanced IT-systems to classify the world's coastlines and national coastal classification data will become gradually available in higher quality as various classification projects are implemented.

Continuous R&D process

The Coastal Hazard Wheel App is undergoing continuous development and the full range of hazard types and management options will be incorporated in planned updates. Furthermore, research is currently carried out on the integration of broader coastal management activities and land-use and the addition of relevant citizen science and risk perspectives.

The Coastal Hazard Wheel App will constitute the backbone of the dynamic classification and adaptation guidance for the world's coastlines and all classification information will become available with open access.

The Coastal Hazard Wheel App can be accessed here (for Google Chrome/Safari) and for further information on our ongoing research, development and classification activities, please get in touch with us.
