This dataset contains annual polygon shapefiles of complete Svalbard coastlines, produced as a part of the project Copernicus Glacier Service.
The dataset is planned to be updated with new coastlines every autumn.
This product has been generated by combining the S100 coastline (standard map product) with annual glacier calving fronts (separate dataset). Only glacier fronts have been updated annually, so land-based coastlines refer to the standard map products in most areas or to summer 2020 Sentinel-2 imagery for areas that have changed nearby glacier fronts. The reference data for glacier fronts are mainly Sentinel-2 or Landsat-8 imagery acquired in the period 15 Aug. to 15 Sept. each year.
