About this Project
This ShoreView project was developed by San Francisco Baykeeper, with support from Google's Impact Challenge program, to foster greater connection with the Bay and enable exploration of typically overlooked parts of the Bay. We used StreetView technology mounted on an unmanned inflatable catamaran, locally manufactured by Marine Advanced Research, to capture imagery of the Bay shoreline. We use this, along with other data, to explore the risks and opportunities of sea level rise adaptation, and help shape a more sustainable Bay Area and a healthier Bay.
