Abstract

The Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM), Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor images, Toposheet and Google Earth Images at unequal intervals spanning 60 years period between 1953 and 2013, were analyzed to quantify the Transgression and Regression along the coast between Kolachel and Kayalpattanam. Visual interpretation and ISODATA classification techniques were used to extract the shorelines. The proposed method estimates the shoreline changes between 1953 and 1992, 1992 and 2006, 2006 and 2013 and the overall period change between 1953 and 2013.The outcome of this proposed method identifies the transgression and regression area of our study area. In this research article, all the process were carried out using ArcGIS 9.3.1, Erdas Imagine 9.1 and Elshyal smart web online software.
