Vector Shoreline Area World 1995

This polygon dataset represents coastlines, countries, and oceans. This data set was originally created for mission planning for military operations. Other potential applications include cartographic representation and boundary determination. The original World Vector Shoreline (WVS) was a digital data file containing the shorelines, international boundaries, and country names of the world. WVS data were processed into NGAs Vector Product Format in 1995, resulting in the highest resolution demarcation of coastline globally available, the World Vector Shoreline Plus.
