SEA LEVEL SCENARIO

SKETCH PLANNING TOOL

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

Training Workshops

The University of Florida GeoPlan Center will hold two virtual training workshops this fall for participants wanting to learn how to use the Sea Level Scenario Sketch Planning Tool.  This workshop will include information about sea level rise projections, the updated data available in the tool, and an interactive portion where participants practice using the features of the online map viewer.  These are interactive workshops, where we will practice how to use the map viewer. Hence, it is recommended that you join with a computer/ laptop (rather than over your phone).

Who Should Attend? Staff from FDOT, MPO/TPO/TPA staff, Regional Planning Councils, and county and municipal staff involved in transportation planning, coastal resiliency efforts, and GIS and mapping.

These workshops are free! But space is limited.
