Sea Level Scenarios Sketch Planning Tool (2013)
This FDOT funded research was developed to better understand the possible impacts of rising sea levels on the state’s transportation system and to explore ways to support decision making and increase the resiliency of transportation infrastructure to these impacts. This interactive Geographic Information System (GIS) tool facilitates the identification of transportation infrastructure potentially at risk from projected sea level changes. The tool builds upon the USACE sea level change projection methodology, as outlined in the latest published USACE Engineering Circular EC 1165-2-212. The tool consists of three elements that can be used either separately or in combination— a map viewer, the output modeled GIS data layers (inundation surfaces and affected infrastructure), and an ArcGIS calculator for creating custom inundation surfaces.
