This study aims to create a system model that implements the concept of Geovisualization on shoreline changes in Padang city. This implementation is to make it easier to identify shoreline changes. The method used to detect changes is by interpreting satellite imagery with the Modified Normalized Difference Water Index (MNDWI) approach and the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS). The imagery used is Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 from 2000 to 2020. The model is designed with a Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) approach. The results obtained are in the form of twenty shorelines per year as well as the amount of abrasion and accretion values from the interpretation. These results are visualized on an online-based map system that allows users to explore, synthesize, present and analyze the interpretation data. In conclusion, the Geovisualization system model is able to make serial data imagery presented dynamically to facilitate identification of shoreline changes.
