MyCoast allows anybody to quickly submit photos of coastal events, such as storm damage or king tides. Our servers automagically geolocate each photo and assign metadata to it, including meteorological and tidal conditions. A small selection of that information is then displayed on the public site, where visitors can view the reports on a map, photo gallery, or list. (Here’s an example of a storm damage report.) Much more data is available to participating state partners.
