The National Geographic Information Institute constructs and supplies coastal base maps containing spatial and geographic information. The main purpose is securing basic data for designing and developing coastal waters. However, there has been no continuous construction of information for all coastal waters in Korea; therefore, detailed and precise coastal water information for each coastal situation cannot be provided. This study introduces a continuous and unified coastal base map for all coastal waters in Korea. The introduced map can be employed to provide coastal water information with high utility, and widely used not only in coastal construction projects but also in various industries related to the spatial development of coastal waters.
