NOAA Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper Tool Demo, by the Florida Hurricane Response Hub
How do you know if your coastal community is exposed to flood hazards and could be at risk of damaging impacts from these hazards? Join us for the NOAA Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper Tool Demo: Focus on Storm and Health Layers hosted by the Florida Hurricane Response Hub. The demo will give an overview of the data layers and how to create user-defined maps that show the people, critical facilities, 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. This demo takes place Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time. If interested in more about this opportunity, please take a moment to sign up here.
