Coastal County Snapshots turn complex data into easy-to-understand stories, complete with charts and graphs. Users select a coastal county of interest and the website does the rest, providing information that can help communities become more resilient to coastal hazards. Current snapshot topics include flood exposure, wetland benefits, and ocean and Great Lakes jobs. Local officials can use the snapshots as a planning tool to assess their county's resilience to flooding and understand the benefits provided by natural resources.
