India: The Survey of India (SoI) has undertaken an Integrated Coastal Zone Mapping of the entire 6,000 odd km of India’s coastline as part of the hazard line mapping. The SoI will map the coast up to a depth of seven km from the high tide line. After analysing the data provided by the SoI, the universities and the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) would draw the hazard line along the coast. The Survey of India would then transfer the information to the ground level by setting up markers on the ground demarcating the hazard line.
