Governments are dedicated to meliorate the occurrence of these phenomena, or else all creations on the earth will suffer from the catastrophe. Global warming is one of the crucial factors resulting in the increase of sea level and coastal erosion. Remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) technologies are thoroughly adopted and applied to monitor the dynamic change of the nature system, such as coastal land use and land cover, sea level rise, and coastal infrastructure.
