About the Data

This is a detailed GIS database of public access locations (point features) along coastal shorelines. It contains a rich variety of information such as amenities (boat launches, toilets, ADA accessible, etc.) and activities (tidepooling, hiking, shellfishing, etc.) that are available at each access point.The information was collected using a GPS in the field between 2008-2010 and is updated as resources allow.

The downloadable Access Points data is available in compressed .Zip files as:

  • ESRI File Geodatabase: Points and full database.
  • ESRI Shapefile: Points and simplified attribute table. Join CSV file for full database.
  • CSV file: Full database only.
