I'm using Folium to generate some interactive maps with ocean data. One of the restrictions I am facing is that the objects, I plot has to be at-least at 5, 6, .., n miles from the coast, hence I am looking for points or lines that meet the criteria.

Where can I find such a data?


As per @albert, https://oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/distfromcoast is probably the best source.

https://earthscience.stackexchange.com/questions/14656/… asks a similar question,

and https://github.com/barrycarter/bcapps/tree/master/STACK/… is one of my attempts to parse the NASA data.

Be careful, though: inland seas are NOT included in these calculations. I've made more thorough calculations using GRASS if you need them, but, once you start including rivers, it gets fairly strange.
