National scale mapping of the coast is expensive and challenging. Dynamic Coast has developed a tool which us satellite data to map the intertidal zone. Coast X-Ray is a step change in the national coverage and currency of intertidal mapping on all beaches, however remote or unstudied. It allows previously ‘too expensive to answer’ questions to be answered at a fraction of the cost.
