Abstract : A series of seventeen maps is presented of the coastal and shore morphology of the northern half of the peninsula of Baja California. A total of 38 classes of both shoreward and landward categories are descriptively employed to cartographically display information interpreted from uncontrolled oblique aerial photographs to existing base maps. Thirty-six examples of color infrared oblique aerial photographs used in the analysis are presented. The greatest difficulty encountered was lack of critical ground control on the photography which necessitated interpretation and resectioning of data onto small scale (1:200,000) maps. (Author)
