A planning tool for preliminary assessment of transportation infrastructure vulnerable to current and future flooding


The purpose of the Sea Level Scenario Sketch Planning Tool is to help identify transportation infrastructure exposed 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, 2013) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA,2017)/ National Climate Assessment.

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 numerous phases between 2012 – 2020.  In 2020, we updated our base data and SLR projections.
