Vector shoreline (VSL) data is potentially useful in ATR systems that distinguish between objects on land or water. Unfortunately available data such as the NOAA 1:250,000 World Vector Shoreline and NGA Prototype Global Shoreline data cannot be used by themselves to make a land/water determination because of the manner in which the data are compiled. We describe a data fusion approach for creating labeled VSL data using test points from Global 30 Arc-Second Elevation (GTOPO30) data to determine the direction of vector segments; i.e., whether they are in clockwise or counterclockwise order. We show consistently labeled VSL data be used to easily determine whether a point is on land or water using a vector cross product test.
