The Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper supports communities that are assessing their coastal hazard risks and vulnerabilities. The tool creates a collection of user-defined maps that show the people, places, and natural resources exposed to coastal flooding. The maps can be saved, downloaded, or shared to communicate flood exposure and potential impacts. In addition, the tool provides guidance for using these maps to engage community members and stakeholders. The current geography includes the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico.
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.
