Beach Landing

The Beach Landing template is for creating maps used to plan and execute amphibious operations. An amphibious operation is a military operation launched from the sea by an amphibious force to conduct landing force operations within the littorals. The littorals include those land areas (and their adjacent sea and associated air space) that are predominantly susceptible to engagement and influence from the sea. Amphibious operations require the unique ability to operate across air, land, and sea.

Personnel need to understand these environments and any physical hazards that could affect the operation. Features such as reefs, rocks, and dense vegetation could hamper the mission's effectiveness, cause damage or harm to equipment and personnel, and waste precious time. Knowing the location of these features allows planners and operators to increase awareness of possible hazards and aid in effective amphibious operation planning.

This template illustrates how you can:

  • Utilize the editing tools and layers to sketch the plan and identify hazard features.
  • Manage marginal information in a layout.


The Beach Landing template requires specific technical experience and software. Minimum system requirements for ArcGIS Pro can be found on the Support website.

Beach Landing is supported on ArcGIS 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, and ArcGIS Pro 1.1.
