Webinar: Mapping Risk in the Mid-Atlantic

With peak hurricane season and the fifth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy approaching, join us July 11 at 11 a.m. for a special webinar showcasing online mapping tools in the Mid-Atlantic that illustrate risks posed to coastal areas, such as flooding, severe storms and sea level rise. This webinar will feature guests demonstrating innovative sites focused at the city, state, regional and national levels:

  • Kyle Spencer, Tidal Inundation Tracking Application for Norfolk (TITAN)/City of Norfolk: TITAN was developed by Norfolk as a resource to increase awareness of coastal flooding impacts throughout the City.
  • Matt Campo, New Jersey Flood Mapper/Rutgers University: This interactive mapping website was designed and created to provide a user-friendly visualization tool that will help get information into the hands of local communities who need to make decisions concerning flooding hazards and sea level rise.
  • Dan RizzaClimate Central: Climate Central, a research non-profit, created Surging Seas, a public web tool that provides local coastal flood risk and sea level rise projections, interactive maps, downloads, and exposure tabulations of demographic, economic, infrastructure, and environmental variables for the continental US states.
  • Karl Vilacoba (moderator), Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal/Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute: The Portal’s ArcGIS Service Input Tool allows users to directly compare map data from outside sites, like the risk-focused tools mentioned above, with its own collection of over 3,000 data layers in Marine Planner.

For planning purposes, please register to Karl Vilacoba at kvilacob@monmouth.edu.
