Decrease of habitat, coastal erosion, and shoreline changes are recent issues for coastal management. In this study, an algorithm which extracts coastlines efficiently and automatically by processing low- or medium-resolution satellite images has been developed. The junction of sea and land is a common result yielded by the automatic coastline extraction method.
