This paper presents a comparison of data sources for assessment of coastal zone wetlands. The information supplying capabilities of aerial photography, Landsat imagery and Seasat radar data were evaluated. This was accomplished by mapping wetlands, and by a change-detection analysis of wetlands in relation to Great Lake water levels. The value of each source is examined in a framework of data gathering and analysis for purposes of coastal zone management.
