Summary
Abstract: Developed by EUMETSAT, the coastline program enables users to overlay coastal outlines on to VIS/IR/WV channel JPEG or GIF files.

- coastlines only
- coastlines with country borders added
- coastlines with latitude/longitude crosshair marks
- coastlines with country borders and latitude/longitude crosshair marks
