Abstract. This paper reports on Intertidal – a collaborative project to demonstrate integrated workflows to 3D spatial data infrastructure (SDI), simulations and geovisual interfaces - as integrated approaches to support the 3D characterization of coastal morphology, intertidal dynamics, potential sea level rise, and mitigation responses to them. Specifically, this project emphasized the potential of emerging 3D data, new analytical visualization methods, and emerging 3D interface technologies as ingredients of emerging and future environmental data science and visualization practice of coastal/intertidal environments.
