Extraction of shoreline incoastal zone is important for coast protection and management. This paper presents extractingthe shoreline with fusion images, which are obtained using various image fusion methods such as IHStransform, Brovey Transform, Multiplicative, Principle Component, Wavelet Resolution Merge. Artificial constructions (e.g. coastalembankments), islands, lakes, tidal mudflats and estuaries have been selected as evaluation objects, shorelines of which are extracted and analyzed. The result indicates that shoreline extraction effect by the Principle Component method is bestamong other methods.
