Figure 2.10. Aerial photographs overlain with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) topography show A) dense coastal development at Myrtle Beach, and B) undeveloped beach and dunes at Waites Island.  Data were collected in 2006 as part of the National Coastal Mapping Program by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Frequent surveys allow geologists to assess short-term change to the shoreline, such as the immediate impact of large storms.
