News – Helicopter Coastal Survey

Irishmarinelife came across a fascinating site this morning; a virtual helicopter tour of our shoreline. This appears not to be new; the images are dated from 2004, however it is a stunningly comprehensive look at our entire coastline from an aerial vantage point. The site appears to be under the responsibility of The Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.

It’s utility is impressive, the fact that it covers in a continuous photo collage every metre of our coastline (excluding Northern Ireland) means it is useful for a range of interests. A quick review of it reveals for example the extent of our coastal defence structures.
