Dataset on the use of geosynthetics in the coastal protection structures of the South-East Baltic
The database provides information on coastal protection structures (containing geosynthetic materials) located on the coast of the South-East Baltic, in the Kaliningrad Oblast (Russia) and the Pomeranian Voivodeship (Poland). The database contains the following sections: the tabular data about coastal protecting structures; the point vector geodata about these structures and used geosynthetic materials on intaractive map; the satellite images and photos. This dataset contains vector geodata only. Spreadsheets (named “ProtectingStructures_tab.xlsx”) contain the coastal protection structures located on the sea coast of the South-East Baltic. Sheet 1 (named “ProtectingStructuresSEB”) shows a list of coastal protection structures in the South-Eastern Baltic that contain geosynthetics and their characteristics. It has 10 columns (Table 1): the number (the conventional two-level number assigned to the structure); the type (type of structure); the location (closest settlement to which the structure is located); the country (country where the structure is located); Building_Reconstruction_year (the year of building or last reconstruction of the structure); Geosyntetic_type (type of geosynthetic material used in the structure); Length_m (length of the structure in m); Width_beach_m (width of the beach in front of the structure, range, m); Lat (latitude, °); Lon (longitude, °). Sheet 2 (named “Legend”) shows the legend described above. Intaractive map data [ProtectingStructures_pnt.kmz] is the point vector layer that contains the information about coastal protection structures located on the sea coast of the South-East Baltic. Projected Coordinate System is WGS 1984, UTM Zone 34N, Projection is Transverse Mercator. The attribute table has the columns: the number (the conventional two-level number assigned to the structure); the type (type of structure); the location (closest settlement to which the structure is located); the country (country where the structure is located); Building_Reconstruction_year (year of building or last reconstruction of the structure); each type of geosynthetics has a separate column (Geotextile, Gabion_coating, Geocontainers, Geocells, Geomat, PVC_sheet_pile), the absence of geosynthetics is designated as “0”, the presence of the geosynthetics is designated as “1”; Length_m (length of the structure in m); Width_beach_m (width of the beach in front of the structure, range, m); Lat (latitude, °); Lon (longitude, °). The satellite images and photos are embedded in the PDF document. They demonstrate the general location (scale 1 : 50 000) of the coastal protection structures in the satellite image (Fig. 1) and their appearance in the photos.
Steps to reproduce
Vector geodata contained the main characteristics of coastal protection structures (type of structure, year of construction or reconstruction, length of the structure, type of geosynthetics) were obtained from the data of archival materials “Baltbergozaschita” (http://bbz39.ru/), as well as from open sources (Efekty, 2016; Hojan et al., 2019; Karmanov et al., 2018; Łabuz, 2013, Ostrowski et al., 2016). Spatial data (geographic coordinates, location, width of the beach) were obtained from satellite images from the GoogleEarth and the YandexMaps via the service SAS.Planet (SASGIS, 2021).
