  3. Visualized data (kml)

JarKus description:

  • There is a separate coordinate system for The JarKus transects. The alongshore coordinate of each transect is linked to a beach pole Rijksstrandpaal (RSP). The coordinates system is different per KustVak. The OpenEarthTools function jarkus_rsp2xy.m can convert from the local RSP system to world coordinates in the Dutch coordinate system EPSG:28992.
