The Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper zoomed to Green Bay, WI with yellow areas covering land to indicate flood exposure.

We recently assisted our client, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management, with updating one of their most popular tools, the Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper. Our staff provided data management, content development, and outreach support to expand the coverage to the U.S. Great Lakes for some of the flood layers, as well as to include tsunami zones for the East Coast. With this update, users can now view people, places, and natural resources exposed to new flood risks in areas previously not available.

In addition, our communication specialist recommended a higher level of outreach efforts for this expansion to more broadly advertise the implications for the Great Lakes region. This led to engaged interest from NOAA, congressional notifications, a press release, and social media rollouts.
