Description

This app is a sampling of America's 95, 000 miles of coastline and the adjacent coastal regions, courtesy of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA and its predecessor agencies have been observing, studying, and surveying America's coastline for nearly 200 years. Indeed, the Coast Survey, the forerunner of all United States science agencies, was formed specifically to chart the United States coastline and the immediate offshore waters.

Please be aware that this application contains many historical photos, which may be of poorer resolution or quality, and which may be in black and white.

The coastline pictures that you will see in this album have come from personnel associated with virtually all elements of NOAA including latter-day Coast Surveyors, fisheries scientists, oceanic and atmospheric researchers, weather observers, and even NOAA librarians. Although most images are relatively recent, there are sketches and drawings dating back to the early Nineteenth Century found within this album.

Come join us now and view the waves and flying spray, rocky shores and sandy beaches, marshes and mangroves, and seaside villages and great port cities that collectively make up America's Coastline!

A subset of the overall feature list for this application includes:

- Advanced search for all images. The top 150 images are returned by the search engine. If you need a more finely-tuned search, simply add more terms into the search field.

- Add/edit/remove images, and access items you added using My Images. If you find that an image that you'd like to add a more complete desription to, you can edit it using your on-screen keypad, or add your own images that you may have available.

- Rate images on a 5-star system. Once rated, the image is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the "Top Rated" button (in the "More" section)

- Mark your favorite images, and save them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the "Top Rated" feature, but with more direct access since the button is always-visible at the bottom of the screen.

- E-mail any image to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.

- Rename categories and add/remove categories. We've given you a starting point to help you categorize and organize your images, but you can always add more, or change the default categorization. Also, you can put any image in up to 2 categories, if desired.

- Shake your mobile device for a random image. This is just fun on every level. Your kids will like this one, too.

- "View All" images for access to every item in the database.

- Use a simple "finger swipe" gesture to move from one image to another, or use the previous/next buttons.

- Insert a textual comment about the image.

- The history feature keeps a log of what you've seen.

- A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.

This app requires at least OS version 3.0
