The purpose of the Sea Level Scenario Sketch Planning Tool is to help identify transportation infrastructure vulnerable to current and future flood risks. The tool analyzes and visualizes current flood risks (100-year and 500-year floodplains and hurricane storm surge zones) as well as future flood risks using sea level rise (SLR) scenarios from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/ National Climate Assessment. The Tool includes (1) a map viewer to help visualize vulnerable infrastructure to flooding, (2) GIS data layers available for download, and (3) an ArcGIS calculator tool for creating GIS layers of SLR inundation.
The SLS Sketch Planning Tool was created by the University of Florida GeoPlan Center with funding from the Florida Department of Transportation. This work has been completed over three phases and multiple years (2012 – 2017). The GeoPlan Center has recently finished Phase 3 of this work, culminating in updated SLR models
of inundation and an updated Map Viewer.
