Version:         1.3

Updates from 1.2 to 1.3.

GSHHS is a high-resolution shoreline data set amalgamated from two data
    bases in the public domain. The data have undergone extensive processing
    and are free of internal inconsistencies such as erratic points and
    crossing segments. The shorelines are constructed entirely from
    hierarchically arranged closed polygons. The data can be used to simplify
    data searches and data selections, or to study the statistical
    characteristics of shorelines and land-masses. It comes with access
    software and routines to facilitate decimation based on a
    standard line-reduction algorithm.

Best regards

    Your FreeGIS Core Team.
