A coastline is the area where land meets the sea or ocean. In the case of GIS, it is represented as a line or polygon which forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. Its use as a base layer allows for the delineation of islands and in some cases political boundaries like an entire country. This file is a mosaic of the highest resolution coastline files available for the 6 members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States under the ECMMAN project as well as the 3 additional countries participating in the CMBP, stewarded by the Nature Conservancy's Caribbean Program.
